Summary

A hazardous waste facility permit from the Department of Environmental Quality is required to store, treat or dispose of hazardous waste materials, or to construct, own or operate any facility engaged in the operation of storing, treating or disposing of hazardous waste or storing recyclable materials. The Department shall not issue a permit for the treatment, disposal or temporary storage of any liquid hazardous waste in a surface impoundment that is not generated by the owners of the surface impoundment. Except as otherwise specifically provided by law, the disposal of any liquid hazardous waste in a landfill or in a surface impoundment is prohibited.

The practice of plowing hazardous waste into the soil surface for the purpose of disposal is prohibited, except unless authorized by a plan approved by the Department of Environmental Quality for biodegradable or inert material. In addition, the site used for such disposal must not be subject to flooding or extensive erosion.
