Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Tennessee requires vehicles that transport solid waste to comply with lighting requirements and with manifest requirements for baled waste.
• Administration and enforcement. Administration and enforcement of the solid waste regulations in Tennessee are handled by the Solid Waste Management Program within the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC). The TDEC inspects wastestreams and transporters to make sure that hazardous waste is not disposed of in solid waste facilities. Local officials are given authority by the TDEC to administer municipal solid waste facility operations, including provisions for the collection of solid waste. The Tennessee Department of Safety administers and enforces requirements for solid waste vehicles.
