Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Ohio has adopted 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. OEPA's Division of Hazardous Waste Management administers and enforces the state's generator accumulation time rules.
OEPA has published a fact sheet to explain the procedure for LQGs to obtain an extension to their 90-day accumulation period: Procedures for a 30-Day Extension Request to the 90-Day Accumulation Period. To access this document, click here.
