Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Generators must identify their hazardous waste by determining whether it is a listed waste or exhibits a hazardous waste characteristic. Virginia incorporates by reference the federal rules that define a waste that exhibits the characteristics of ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, or toxicity as a hazardous waste. The federal characteristic waste requirements are described in the national section CHARACTERISTIC WASTE.
• Administration and enforcement. The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Division of Land Protection and Revitalization administers and enforces the state's rules for identifying characteristic hazardous waste.
