Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Illinois has adopted the federal listed hazardous wastes by reference. The federal listed hazardous wastes are reviewed in the national section LISTED WASTES.

Illinois has federal authorization to delist hazardous wastes. See the state section DELISTING PETITIONS for more information.

Under the federal universal waste rule, identified hazardous wastes remain hazardous wastes but are not collected and managed in compliance with the full hazardous waste rules. See the state section UNIVERSAL WASTES for more information.

In addition, IEPA has management rules for "industrial process wastes" that are specific to the state of Illinois. Industrial process wastes are not listed hazardous wastes, but are recognized by IEPA as special wastes that must be properly treated, stored, or disposed of in order to protect human health and the environment. The industrial process wastes are discussed in the state section SOLID WASTE.

Administration and enforcement. IEPA enforces the listed waste requirements in Illinois.
