Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Virginia incorporates by reference the federal regulations that classify wastes as hazardous if they have been placed on hazardous waste lists by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). See the national section LISTED WASTES to review the federal listing criteria and the national sections CHARACTERISTIC WASTE and HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) for additional information on hazardous waste identification and classification. In addition, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) oversees a category of waste designated as "special waste." See the state section SOLID WASTE for information on special waste.

Virginia does not have EPA authorization to delist Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous wastes. All delisting petitions must be submitted to EPA Region 3. However, EPA Region 3 recommends that persons filing delisting petitions contact the DEQ to find out if there are any state procedures that must be followed for the waste for which delisting is sought. A copy of the delisting petition must be filed with the DEQ. See the state section DELISTING PETITIONS for more information.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Division of Land Protection and Revitalization administers and enforces the listed hazardous waste requirements in Virginia.
