Just a heads up from LAN, there’s a new hazardous waste requirement for small quantity generators of hazardous waste that must be met by Sept. 1st of this year. Below is some important info about who is impacted and what steps you need to take.     

What is going on?

Small Quantity Generators (SQG’s) of hazardous waste in most states are now required to submit re-notification of their hazardous waste activities every four years.  The first re-notification is due by September 1, 2021

Why are there new requirements?

This new requirement is part of the 2016 Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule, which is effective in states that have adopted the rule or have been authorized by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to implement it.  The purpose of the re-notification requirement is to improve the SQG data and to maintain more accurate data into the future for outreach, compliance assistance and oversight activities.

Who is impacted?

Both New Jersey and Pennsylvania, as well as numerous other states, have adopted this new rule.  SQG’s in these states are required to complete and submit the Notification of RCRA Subtitle C Activities (Site Identification Form), also known as EPA Form 8700-12 in order to achieve compliance with the re-notification requirement.  SQG’s are defined as generators which generate between 100 and 1,000 kilograms of non-acute hazardous waste, and less than 1 kilogram of acute hazardous waste each month.

What are my next steps?

Your next steps are simple. If you are required to submit the form you should do so ASAP. If you are unsure about how to correctly compile and submit the required information, LAN Associates can help you do so.
