Authorized Treatment, Storage, Or Disposal Facility
A facility at which hazardous waste is treated, stored, or disposed of that:
(A) has received either:
- a permit (or interim status) in accordance with the requirements of 40 CFR, Parts 270 and 124 (EPA permit); or
- a permit (or interim status) from a state authorized in accordance with 40 CFR, Part 271; and
(B) is authorized under applicable state or federal law to treat, store, or dispose of that type of hazardous waste. If a hazardous oil and gas waste is destined to a facility in an authorized state that has not yet obtained authorization from the EPA to regulate that particular hazardous waste, then the designated facility must be a facility allowed by the receiving state to accept such waste and the facility must have a permit issued by the EPA to manage that waste.
