See national section for basic information and federal regulations.

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Arkansas follows the federal regulations for identifying and classifying hazardous waste including the federal rule that conditionally excludes cathode-ray tubes from the definition of solid waste. Check with ADEQ to see whether the state has yet adopted the federal conditional exclusion from the definition of solid waste for hazardous waste secondary materials (effective at the federal level in January 2009).

Generators seeking to exclude a specific hazardous waste from the list of "listed hazardous wastes" should note that the state regulations do not provide for a delisting program. See the state section DELISTING PETITIONS for more information.

Administration and enforcement. ADEQ's Hazardous Waste Division administers and enforces the state's hazardous waste identification and classification rules.
