Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The Alabama regulations for identifying characteristic waste are the same as the federal regulations, including the federal regulations that contain the criteria for identifying hazardous waste by the characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, and toxicity. See the national section CHARACTERISTIC WASTE for more information. Wastes may be classified as hazardous because of their characteristics or if they have been placed on hazardous waste lists by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. See the state sections HAZWASTE DETERMINATION (CLASSIFICATION) and LISTED WASTES for additional guidance.

Administration and enforcement. ADEM's Land Division administers and enforces the state's hazardous waste program in Alabama.
