State Requirements

TREATMENT FACILITY PERMITS AND FEES

Rhode Island's permit requirements for hazardous waste treatment facilities include the federal standards, plus the state's additional rules requiring a permit application fee, additional permit conditions, and facility siting requirements. See the state section TSDF PERMITS for more information.

GENERATOR ON-SITE RESOURCE RECOVERY

RI Gen. Laws 23-19.1-10(q)(3)

Unlike the federal rules, Rhode Island's rules do not interpret their generator on-site accumulation rules at RI Rule 12.030.003-5.02, to allow generators to treat hazardous waste on-site without a permit for a specified period of time. Generators in Rhode Island must apply for a treatment permit for any on-site treatment of hazardous waste that is not otherwise exempt under the state's hazardous waste management rules.
