Hazardous Waste Storage
National Summary
DO HAZARDOUS WASTE STORAGE REQUIREMENTS APPLY TO YOU? To know if you must comply with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) hazardous waste storage rules. The burden of complying with hazardous waste storage regulations is based largely on how long a period of time hazardous waste is kept at your facility. Permitted TSDFs can store hazardous wastes for years but have to go through an intensive permit application process and, once permitted, comply with more regulations than those that apply to unpermitted facilities. Generators are exempt from permit requirements but only if they comply with extensive regulations called "the accumulation time rule" that limit the time and amount of their hazardous waste that may be accumulated on-site and dictate the manner in which the waste may be stored.
