The New Mexico Environment Department's Hazardous Waste Bureau is responsible for the management of hazardous waste in the state. The Bureau enforces the rules established by the Environmental Improvement Board.
These rules establish regulations for the management of hazardous waste, including standards for the identification and listing of hazardous waste, for generators and transporters of hazardous waste, for owners and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities, for specific wastes and such facilities, for land disposal restrictions, and for issuing, suspending, revoking, or modifying permits. A schedule of fees is provided for facilities seeking permits, currently permitted, or undergoing corrective action for past or present hazardous waste management activities. Fees paid are for deposit in the hazardous waste fund to meet necessary expenses in the administration and operation of the state hazardous waste program.
