Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Florida adopts by reference the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule, effective in Florida as of June 18, 2018, which includes standards that allow generators to treat hazardous waste on-site.

The state adopts by reference the federal treatment rules for both permitted and interim-status hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs). In addition, the state has more stringent rules in connection with treatment facility groundwater standards and treatment facility permit application rules and permit fees. See the state section TSDF PERMITS for more information on these rules and fees and the state section GROUNDWATER to review the state's more stringent groundwater standards.
