Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kansas has adopted the federal hazardous waste container requirements, including the federal empty container standards and the organic air emission standards. 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 facility fees.
• Administration and enforcement. KDHE's Bureau of Waste Management administers and enforces the container requirements in Kansas, including the organic air emissions standards.
