Texas Industries Must Meet Federal and State Requirements

Industries and business that generate hazardous waste in Texas don’t have it easy. They must assure their operations comply with both the Federal Environmental Protection Agency regulations and additional mandates imposed by the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ). In addition to meeting annual training requirements for facility personnel, regulated industries must also keeping up with periodic regulatory changes, such as the new hazardous waste recycling regulations.

Fines for non-compliance with environmental regulations are steep. In just the past three months, the TCEQ approved penalties totaling over $5 million against 447 regulated entities for violations of state environmental regulations. Assuring facility personnel know their compliance responsibilities is the best line of defense.
