Frequent Questions

Can a commercial TSDF manage hazardous wastes in tanks, containers or containment buildings under a standardized permit?

Generally, commercial TSDFs may not manage waste under a standardized permit, because the wastes a commercial TSDF manages are usually generated off-site by many different generators. As described under “Who is eligible for a RCRA Standardized Permit?,” you may be eligible for a standardized permit if: 

(a) you generate hazardous waste and then store or non-thermally treat the hazardous waste on-site in containers, tanks, or containment buildings, or if 

(b) you receive hazardous waste generated off-site by a generator under the same ownership as your facility, and then you store or non-thermally treat the hazardous waste in containers, tanks, or containment buildings.
