Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Connecticut has adopted the federal rules for hazardous waste containers, including the empty container standards, and has additional state labeling and secondary containment requirements for generators storing hazardous waste in containers on-site and owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) that use containers for hazardous waste management.
In addition, owners and operators of TSDFs must comply with additional permit application requirements and pay several state permit and facility fees. There are no equivalent federal fees. See the state section TSDF PERMITS for guidance.
