Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Texas has adopted by reference the federal rules that define a waste that exhibits the characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity as a hazardous waste. For a discussion of the federal rules, see the national section CHARACTERISTIC WASTE. Wastes may be classified as hazardous because of their characteristics or if they have been placed on hazardous waste lists by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In addition, a generator may also use knowledge of the process that created the waste to further classify wastes. See the state sections HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) and LISTED WASTES for more information on how Texas classifies wastes.

Texas does not have EPA authorization to delist Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous wastes. See the state section DELISTING PETITIONS for more information.

Administration and enforcement. TCEQ administers and enforces the state's rules for identifying characteristic hazardous waste.
