Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Louisiana follows the federal rules for hazardous waste containers, including the empty container rules and organic air emissions standards. In addition, the state has a container stacking restriction, inspection recordkeeping requirements, and fee requirements.
• Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Office of Environmental Services administers and enforces the container requirements in Louisiana.
All hazardous waste containers at permitted storage facilities must be stacked so that each container's identification label can be read from the storage area access aisle.
Note: This provision does not apply to interim-status facilities or to large quantity generators (LQGs) and small quantity generators (SQGs) accumulating hazardous waste in containers on-site without a permit (LAC 33:V.1109.E.1.a.i, LAC 33:V.1109.E.7.a, or LAC 33:V.4425).
