It is the public policy of the state of South Dakota to regulate the control and generation, transportation, treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous wastes. The state operates a comprehensive regulatory program of hazardous waste management, and the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Board of Minerals and Environment are authorized to promulgate regulations and rules relating to this program. Any person generating, transporting, treating, storing, or disposing of a hazardous waste is required to file a notification of hazardous waste activities. A permit issued by the Board of Minerals and Environment is required for the ownership, construction, operation, or modification of any hazardous waste treatment, storage, or disposal management facility.

Specific regulations can be found in the SD Administrative Rules section 74:28, which contains sections pertaining to general requirements, monitoring and reporting, groundwater monitoring, surface impoundments, hazardous waste piles, landfills, treatment facilities, underground injections, and specific types of waste, as well as the treatment, storage, disposal, and transportation of hazardous waste.
