The state's more stringent rules cover labeling hazardous waste tanks and containers, a permit application disclosure statement, notification on the facility's property deed, restrictive covenants and easements as required by KDHE, laboratory certified waste analyses for hazardous waste burned for destruction or energy recovery or analyzed in connection with groundwater monitoring, underground injections wells, and various state facility fees.

Administration and enforcement. KDHE's Bureau of Waste Management administers and enforces the hazardous waste TSDF requirements in Kansas.
