Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Utah has adopted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule, effective on the federal level as of May 30, 2017, and effective in Utah as of August 31, 2017. The federal accumulation time rules 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.
• Administration and enforcement. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control administers and enforces the generator accumulation time requirements.
