The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
authorizes the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality to operate the
federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act hazardous waste program in
Oregon. Oregon must periodically review and adopt new or amended federal rules
to retain this authorization. DEQ last updated its rules in July 2017. In that rulemaking,
DEQ incorporated by reference most federal rules enacted through June 30, 2015.
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is proposing to align its hazardous waste fees to better support program needs. The proposed fees will ensure DEQ continues to implement the state’s federally delegated hazardous waste management program while providing technical assistance to many more business. These fees will affect 500 sites producing hazardous waste and two businesses operating permitted treatment, storage, and disposal facilities.
