There are no additional state requirements. See the national section ACCUMULATION TIME to review the specific time periods applicable to each type of generator. See the state section HAZARDOUS WASTE STORAGE for more specific information on how generators may accumulate hazardous waste on-site without a permit.
• Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Water and Waste Management administers and enforces the state's generator accumulation time requirements.
