Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Generators must identify their hazardous waste by determining whether it is a listed waste or exhibits a hazardous waste characteristic. Virginia follows the federal rules that define a waste that exhibits the characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity as a hazardous waste. See the national section CHARACTERISTIC WASTE for more information.

Virginia incorporates by reference the federal regulations for identifying and classifying hazardous waste, including the federal conditional exclusion from the definition of solid waste for cathode-ray tubes. Check with DEQ to see whether the state has yet adopted the federal conditional exclusion from the definition of solid waste for hazardous waste secondary materials (effective at the federal level in January 2009). See the state sections HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) and LISTED WASTES for more information.

Virginia does not have EPA authorization to delist Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous wastes. All delisting petitions must be submitted to EPA Region 3. A copy of the delisting petition must be filed with DEQ. See the state section DELISTING PETITIONS for more information.

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