Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. At present, Arizona has no commercial landfills that accept hazardous waste. However, the state's hazardous waste program retains hazardous waste landfill regulations that are more stringent than the federal requirements. Arizona's hazardous waste landfill requirements include the federal rules and the state's additional rules concerning treatment of hazardous waste before disposal, facility permit standards, and facility fees.

Arizona follows the federal rules for solid (nonhazardous) waste landfills, with additional state requirements in connection with fees. See the state section SOLID WASTE for more information.

Administration and enforcement. ADEQ's Waste Programs Division administers and enforces both the hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste landfill requirements in Arizona.
