Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Office of Compliance and Enforcement

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 6

See national section for basic information and federal regulations.

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Texas does not have EPA authority to delist Resource Conservation and Recovery Act wastes. The federal rules 40 CFR 260.20 and 40 CFR 260.22 for delisting petitions are effective in Texas. All delisting petitions must be filed with EPA Region 6.

Texas has adopted by reference the federal lists of hazardous wastes. The federal listed hazardous wastes are reviewed in the national section LISTED WASTES.

Texas refers to hazardous waste as either hazardous industrial waste or municipal hazardous waste. In addition, Texas has its own waste codes applicable to listed hazardous waste. See the state section HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) for hazardous waste class descriptions and a review of state waste codes.

Administration and enforcement. EPA Region 6 administers and enforces the rules for delisting petitions in Texas. However, EPA recommends that regulated facilities in states that do not have EPA authorization to delist wastes consult with their state regulatory agency when attempting to delist a waste. Contact TCEQ before filing a delisting petition with EPA Region 6.
