Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Maryland follows the federal container requirements, which include the federal empty container standards and organic air emissions rules. In addition, the state has its own containment system requirement. The federal organic air emissions standards are also in effect in the state. Unlike the federal rules, the state rules for interim status hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) with containers are identical to the rules for permitted facilities.

Maryland also requires owners and operators of permitted TSDFs using containers to pay facility fees. The state's facility fees are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.

Administration and enforcement. MDE's Waste Management Administration administers and enforces the container requirements in Maryland. The federal organic air emissions standards are administered and enforced in Maryland by EPA's Region 3 office.
