Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Rhode Island's hazardous waste management rules include the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) rules and several stricter state requirements. Although Rhode Island has received RCRA authorization from EPA to administer the state's hazardous waste program, petitions to delist a federal hazardous waste must be submitted to EPA Region 1.

In addition to the hazardous wastes regulated under the federal rules, Rhode Island identifies additional wastes as hazardous waste. Although there are no specific rules that govern the delisting of a state-listed waste, DEM follows state variance rules for requests to delist a Rhode Island waste.

Administration and enforcement. EPA administers and enforces rules for the delisting of a federal listed waste. DEM's Office of Waste Management administers and enforces state variance rules for delisting petitions for state-listed wastes in Rhode Island.
