Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Florida's closure and post-closure rules for treatment, storage and disposal facilities (TSDFs) include both the federal requirements (which are incorporated by reference) and the state's additional rules requiring a closure permit and fee. In addition to complying with the general closure and post-closure standards, owners or operators of the various types of TSDFs must meet closure and post-closure standards specific to their facility types. Florida follows the federal rules specific to facilities using containers, hazardous waste storage tanks, hazardous waste landfills, land treatment units, and surface impoundments.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Bureau of Solid and Hazardous Waste administers and enforces the TSDF closure and post-closure requirements in Florida.
