Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Ohio follows the federal hazardous waste storage rules and adds more stringent storage facility standards for permitted storage facilities and an additional requirement for large quantity generators (LQGs) and small quantity generators (SQGs) accumulating hazardous waste on-site without a permit.
• Administration and enforcement The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency's (OEPA) Division of Materials and Waste Management administers and enforces the hazardous waste storage rules in Ohio.
Ohio's permit and operation requirements for hazardous waste storage facilities include the federal standards plus the state's additional requirements in connection with the permit application process. Unlike the federal rules, Ohio requires storage facilities to pay a permit application fee and an annual permit fee. For additional information regarding the state's permit application process and fees, see the state section TSDF PERMITS.
