Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kentucky uses the federal list of hazardous wastes, with the addition of nerve and blister agents as hazardous wastes.
• Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Waste Management administers and enforces the listed hazardous waste rules in Kentucky.
A "listed" waste is one that appears on one of four federal lists—F, K, P, or U. See the national section LISTED WASTES for more information on federal listed wastes. Use the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) to identify the chemical components in the product. See the national section MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET for additional information.
