The MA DEP is now using a state version of the federal Notification of Hazardous Waste Activity form #8700-12. All generators of hazardous waste and waste oil must use this form going forward.
Prior to this form being rolled out, there were two separate forms for generators to use to notify the DEP of hazardous waste and waste oil generation depending on the volume of waste generated per calendar month. Very small quantity generators were required to use a separate form than small quantity generators and large quantity generators. The old forms are no longer being accepted and will be returned if they are submitted.
This is also a good time to remember to track monthly generation of hazardous waste to ensure the thresholds for generator status are not being exceeded.
