Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Missouri's waste management rules include many of the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act's (RCRA) rules as well as stricter state requirements for hazardous and solid (nonhazardous) waste management and USTs. Missouri has received RCRA authorization from EPA. RCRA authorization allows the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to administer and enforce the state's hazardous waste, solid (nonhazardous) waste, and underground storage tank (UST) management programs.

To receive RCRA authorization from EPA, a state's waste management rules must, at the time of authorization, be at least as stringent as, and consistent with, the federal RCRA rules. To maintain federal authorization, the DNR must adopt EPA's latest RCRA rules, or adopt stricter state standards. See the following state sections for specific information: HAZARDOUS WASTE (REGULATORY OVERVIEW), SOLID WASTE, and UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS.
