Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kentucky follows the federal standards for generators treating hazardous waste on-site, provided certain additional state requirements are met. Kentucky's rules for permitted and interim-status hazardous waste treatment facilities follow the federal standards with additional state design, operation, permit, and facility location requirements for several treatment units.
• Administration and enforcement. DEP's Division of Waste Management administers and enforces Kentucky's hazardous waste treatment rules.
