Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Kentucky has adopted by reference the federal regulations for universal waste, including the provisions for mercury-containing equipment. In addition, Kentucky requires the payment of certain registration and petition fees.
• Administration and enforcement. The Department for Environmental Protection's (DEP) Hazardous Waste Branch administers and enforces the universal waste rule in Kentucky.
Persons petitioning the DEP to add additional wastes to management under the universal waste regulations in accordance with the petition procedures set forth at 401 KAR 43:070 must submit a fee of $2,500 with the petition.
Because fees are subject to change, contact the DEP for the latest fee schedule.
