Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Montana adopts by reference the federal regulations for management of universal wastes, including management of fluorescent and other hazardous waste lamps, but with the exception of the provision pertaining to petitions to add a hazardous waste or hazardous waste category to the universal waste management standards at 40 CFR 273. There are additional state provisions for the treatment of waste lamps on-site by crushing or intentional breaking.
• Administration and enforcement. DEQ's Hazardous Waste Program administers and enforces the universal waste rules in Montana.
