Rules. Connecticut's hazardous waste landfill requirements include the federal rules and the state's facility permit standards, including facility fees. See the state section TSDF PERMITS for additional guidance. In addition, DEP has not adopted the federal rules that allow wastes with free liquids to be treated with nonbiodegradable sorbents and has adopted its own definition of nonbiodegradable in connection with lab packs.

Connecticut has its own rules for solid (nonhazardous) waste landfills. In addition, the federal solid waste landfill requirements are in effect in Connecticut. See the state section SOLID WASTE for more information.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Bureau of Materials Management and Compliance Assurance administers and enforces both the hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste landfill requirements in Connecticut.
