The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, in coordination with the Arkansas Pollution Control & Ecology Commission, strives to maintain and administer a hazardous waste management program that is equivalent in force and effect to and no less stringent than the Federal program as established by the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, as amended, including but not limited to the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments.

Arkansas’s hazardous waste management program, in its broadest statement of purpose, is designed to protect the public health and safety and the environment from the effects of improper, inadequate, or unsound management of hazardous wastes. It accomplishes this to the fullest extent possible by establishing a program of strict regulation over the generation, storage, transportation, treatment, disposal, and other forms of management of these wastes. The program additionally affords the people of the State a voice in the management of hazardous wastes within Arkansas. The lead agency for the hazardous waste management program in Arkansas is the Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ).
