Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Missouri has adopted the federal hazardous waste management regulations, including the hazardous waste transporter regulations. However, there are additional state requirements that include a special operating license, a 10-day transit limit, recordkeeping, emergency response procedures, fees, and insurance. Missouri also has requirements for hazardous waste transfer facilities.
• Administration and enforcement. The regulations for hazardous waste transporters are administered and enforced by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources' (DNR) Division of Environmental Quality Hazardous Waste Program. The Missouri Department of Transportation's (MoDOT) Motor Carrier Services Unit issues hazardous waste transporter licenses.
