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. DNR's Waste and Materials Management Program administers and enforces the state's accumulation time rules for hazardous wastes.
