Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Illinois follows the federal hazardous waste container requirements, including the empty container standards and the organic air emissions standards. In addition, owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities 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 sections TSDF PERMITS and TSDF RESPONSIBILITIES.
• Administration and enforcement. IEPA's Division of Land Pollution Control administers and enforces the container requirements in Illinois.
