Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. North Carolina adopts by reference the federal rules for hazardous waste containers, including the empty container requirements and the organic air emissions standards. The state has the additional requirement that generators, like treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs), must keep a log of their container inspections.
North Carolina also requires owners and operators of permitted TSDFs using containers to pay several state permit and facility fees. The state's facility fees are reviewed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.
• Administration and enforcement. The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality's (DEQ) Division of Waste Management administers and enforces the hazardous waste container requirements in North Carolina.
