Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. South Carolina follows the federal regulations for identifying and classifying hazardous waste, including the conditional exclusions from the definitions of solid and hazardous waste for solvent-contaminated wipes. In addition, South Carolina's rules are more stringent because it has added state hazardous wastes to the federal list of hazardous wastes. See the state section LISTED WASTES for specific information.

Check with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to see if it has adopted the federal exclusion from the definition of solid waste for certain hazardous secondary materials, effective at the federal level in July 2015 (the 2014 Definition of Solid Waste Rule) or the hazardous waste exclusion for carbon dioxide (CO2) streams in geological sequestration activities.

Administration and enforcement. DHEC's Division of Mining and Solid Waste Management administers and enforces the state's regulations for identifying hazardous waste.
