Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Arizona follows the federal biennial report rules for hazardous waste large quantity generators (LQGs) (persons generating 1,000 kilograms (kg) or more of hazardous waste or more than 1 kg of acutely hazardous waste a month) and for treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). The state no longer requires LQGs and TSDFs to submit an annual report to the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) by March 1 of each year.

Administration and enforcement. The ADEQ's Waste Programs Division administers and enforces the state's biennial and annual reporting requirements.
