Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Colorado has adopted the federal biennial report requirements for hazardous waste large quantity generators (LQGs) and treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDF) owners and operators. The federal form, EPA Form 8700-13A/B, must be sent to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) by March 1 of each even-numbered year.
• Administration and enforcement. CDPHE's Hazardous Materials and Waste Management Division administers and enforces the state's biennial report requirements.
Colorado is one of the few states that requires the biennial report Form OI to be completed and submitted by sites that send hazardous waste off-site. Contact CDPHE for more information.
