Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Delaware adopts by reference the federal rules for containment buildings. There are no additional state requirements. Owners and operators of containment buildings must comply with permit application requirements, including those regarding site location and an application fee, that are in addition to the federal permit requirements. In addition, permitted container facilities must pay an annual hazardous waste assessment fee. See the state section TSDF PERMITS to review Delaware's permitting and fee requirements.
• Administration and enforcement. DNREC's Division of Waste and Hazardous Substances administers and enforces the containment building requirements in Delaware.
