Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Pennsylvania has adopted the federal listed hazardous wastes. The federal list is reviewed in the national section LISTED WASTES. When it is not promptly possible to determine if a material will be a hazardous waste, Pennsylvania requires that the material be managed as a hazardous waste until the determination is made that indicates it is not a hazardous waste. No delisting of hazardous waste is effective unless adopted by DEP. See the state section DELISTING PETITIONS for more information. If a waste cannot be identified in one of the federal hazardous waste lists, it still might be hazardous because it exhibits one or more characteristics of hazardous waste—ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity. See the state section CHARACTERISTIC WASTE for more information.

Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Hazardous Waste Management administers and enforces the rules for listed hazardous wastes in Pennsylvania.
