Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Colorado follows the federal hazardous waste container requirements, including the federal empty container standards and organic air emissions standards and has additional requirements for interim status TSDFs and generators accumulating hazardous waste on-site without a permit. In addition, owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) that use containers must comply with additional permit application requirements and pay several state permit and facility fees. The state's more stringent permit standards and fees are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.

Administration and enforcement. The state's hazardous waste container requirements are administered and enforced by CDPHE's Solid and Hazardous Waste Program.
