Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) Hazardous Waste Division
See national section for basic information and federal regulations.
Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Arkansas follows the federal regulations for identifying and classifying hazardous waste, including the federal conditional exclusions from the definitions of solid waste as they apply to cathode-ray tubes, the conditional exclusions from the definitions of solid and hazardous waste for solvent-contaminated wipes, and the hazardous waste exclusion for carbon dioxide streams in geologic sequestration activities. Check with the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) to see whether the state has yet adopted the 2015 federal conditional exclusion from the definition of solid waste for hazardous waste secondary materials.
• Administration and enforcement. ADEQ's Hazardous Waste Division administers and enforces the state's hazardous waste identification and classification rules.
