Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Arkansas has received RCRA authorization from EPA. RCRA authorization allows the Hazardous Waste Division of ADEQ to enforce the state's hazardous waste management rules. However, Arkansas does not provide for a state delisting program. See the national section DELISTING PETITIONS for information on the federal delisting petition requirements.

Administration and enforcement. EPA Region 6 and APCEC jointly review petitions, but the final determination of whether a waste will be delisted is made solely by EPA Region 6 in Dallas. To date, Arkansas has no enforcement power in granting delisting petitions.

State Requirements


AR Reg. 23.260.22

To delist a waste in Arkansas, an applicant must first complete the process to obtain a final delisting decision from EPA Region 6. Once a final federal delisting decision has been published in the Federal Register, it is not effective in Arkansas until APCEC completes rulemaking to approve and incorporate the federal decision in AR Reg. 23.
