Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. In addition to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) biennial reporting requirements, New Hampshire requires generators of hazardous waste and treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) to file quarterly reports within 45 days following the last day of the previous quarter. A fee must also accompany each quarterly report. New Hampshire no longer has the requirement that TSDFs submit an annual activity report by April 1.

Note: At present, there are no permitted hazardous waste TSDFs in New Hampshire.

Administration and enforcement. The Hazardous Waste Management Bureau of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) administers and enforces the annual reporting requirements in the state.
