Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. South Carolina follows the federal land disposal restrictions (LDRs). South Carolina, however, did not adopt the following federal LDRs because EPA has not delegated authority to states to implement these rules:

—Case-by-case extensions (40 CFR 268.5)

—No-migration variances (40 CFR 268.6)

—Equivalent method variances (40 CFR 268.42(b))

—Variances from treatment standards (40 CFR 268.44)

See LDR Exceptions in the national section LAND DISPOSAL RESTRICTIONS/LAND BAN for more information about these extensions and variances.

Administration and enforcement. South Carolina's hazardous waste management program is authorized by EPA and administered by DHEC's Bureau of Land and Waste Management. However, when new regulations are issued under the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), EPA will administer these new regulations until equivalent or more stringent rules are adopted in South Carolina.
