Comparison: State vs. Federal
· Rules. Alaska has adopted by reference the federal accumulation time rules that allow generators to accumulate hazardous waste on-site without a permit for specific periods of time. See the national section ACCUMULATION TIME to review the specific time periods applicable to each type of generator. For generator on-site hazardous waste storage requirements, see the state section HAZARDOUS WASTE STORAGE.
· Administration and enforcement. DEC does not have an EPA authorized hazardous waste program, although it maintains a hazardous waste information line. EPA’s Region 10 office administers and enforces the hazardous waste accumulation rules in Alaska.
