Welcome to the Division of Waste & Hazardous Substances. Our division permits landfills, waste transporters, and under- and above-ground storage tanks, and cleans up tire piles and sites that have been contaminated due to releases of hazardous substances. We also have staff whose sole purpose is preventing catastrophic releases of chemicals, others who work with other emergency responders when there’s a fire or a spill at a facility with chemicals onsite, and still more staff who respond when a fire or spill occurs elsewhere.
We have tried to design our website so that there are at least five ways to get to any information you are trying to find. We are always looking to improve our web pages and to get information online that's most frequently sought. If you are seeking specific information and can’t find it, or have a suggestion about how to improve our website, I would appreciate hearing from you. You can contact me at: Timothy.Ratsep@delaware.gov
