Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Delaware follows the federal biennial report rules for hazardous waste large quantity generators (LQGs) and treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). In addition, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) requires that LQGs and TSDFs submit an Annual Report by March 1 of each calendar year to report hazardous waste activities for the previous calendar year and therefore refers to both the biennial report and the annual report as an annual report. TSDFs and LQGs must use the federal hard-copy or electronic biennial report form to submit what are, in effect, these annual reports
• Administration and enforcement. The DNREC’s Division of Waste and Hazardous Substances administers and enforces the biennial/annual report requirements in Delaware.
