If your facility is registered with the MA DEP as a Large Quantity Generator (LQG) of hazardous waste, don’t forget that 2020 is a year when biennial reports must be filed. Biennial reports are due by March 1st of even numbered years for any facility that exceeded the LQG threshold during the preceding odd numbered year, even if your facility is no longer registered as an LQG. Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs) are also required to report every two years.
Biennial reports provide the DEP with information on the quantity and nature of the hazardous waste that was generated in the previous year and whether the waste was sent for recycling, treatment, storage, or disposal. As of 2018, biennial reports need to be filed electronically using the RCRAInfo Industry Application. The electronic submission includes the following:
- RCRA Subtitle C Site Identification Form
- Waste Generation and Management (GM) Form
- Waste Received From Off-Site (WR) Form, and
- Off-Site Identification (OI) Form.
For additional information about the biennial reporting process, or for help with your facility’s electronic submission to meet the March 1, 2020 deadline, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
