Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Although Wisconsin has adopted the federal hazardous waste storage rules, the state has added several more stringent rules. The state's more stringent hazardous waste storage rules apply to licensing permitted storage facilities and on-site accumulation of hazardous waste by small quantity generators (SQGs) and very small quantity generators (VSQGs).
• Administration and enforcement. DNR's Bureau of Waste and Materials Management administers and enforces the hazardous waste storage rules in Wisconsin.
