Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Oklahoma incorporates by reference the federal biennial reporting requirements for reporting hazardous waste. DEQ also requires quarterly reports for large quantity generators (LQGs) generating hazardous waste within the state and monthly reports for TSDFs.
• Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Land Protection Division administers and enforces the state's quarterly reporting requirements, while EPA's Region 6 office administers and enforces the federal biennial report requirements.
LQGs and owners and operators of TSDFs must submit biennial reports each even-numbered year. The deadline for reporting is March 1. The state biennial report form mirrors the federal reporting form, and is available from DEQ.
See the national section BIENNIAL REPORT for a review of the federal reporting requirements.
