Hazardous Waste Financial Assurance Requirements

An owner/operator of a hazardous waste treatment, storage, and/or disposal facility establishes financial assurance to ensure that sufficient funds are available for closure/post closure/corrective action activities related to its hazardous and/or solid waste management units.  Financial assurance requirements address: the cost of closing a hazardous waste facility; the annual cost required for post-closure monitoring and maintenance; liability coverage for sudden and non-sudden accidental occurrences; and corrective action required for solid and hazardous waste management units.

Who is required to comply with the hazardous waste financial assurance requirements?

All facilities conducting hazardous waste treatment, storage and/or disposal activities, whether permitted or not, are required to comply with Ohio’s financial assurance requirements with the exception of the State of Ohio and federal agencies.
