Large quantity generators (LQGs) in New York State must submit annual reports of their hazardous waste activity by March 1
New York DEC Hazardous Waste Annual Reports
How to Submit Your Annual NY Hazardous Waste Report
If you generate hazardous waste in New York and you plan submit your report electronically, you should check NYSDEC's website first.
A notice posted on the site states
"As of January 2021, the vendor that supported electronic reporting for hazardous waste annual reports for DEC has ceased operation. DEC will be transitioning to EPA’s RCRAInfo system for electronic submissions of hazardous waste annual reports."
Reporting instructions for hazardous waste generators are available on DEC’s website: NYSDEC Hazardous Waste Annual Reports
DEC also posted an industry user guide
for professionals who want to submit using the RCRAInfo portal.
RCRA Biennial Reports vs. Annual Reports
The Federal RCRA hazardous waste regulations require generators to submit reports biennially (i.e. once every two years). States with authorized RCRA programs, like New York, are free to create requirements that are more stringent
than the Federal RCRA rules.
Requiring annual reports from generators is one of the more-stringent requirements imposed in New York.
Hazardous Waste Training is Required Annually, Too
Along with annual reports, New York State DEC requires annual training
for hazardous waste personnel at large quantity generator facilities.* Lion offers NY Hazardous Waste Management training
that covers New York's unique hazardous waste management requirements for generators.
Join Lion for a live webinar on March 17
