RCRA Re-Notification Reminder for SQGs

Posted on 7/30/2020 by Roger Marks

US EPA recently reminded hazardous waste facilities that, starting September 1, 2021, small quantity generators must re-notify EPA of their activities once every four years.

EPA added the RCRA re-notification requirement for generators in the 2016 Generator Improvements Rule. At last count, twenty-seven states have adopted the revised hazardous waste standards.

The re-notification requirement applies only to small quantity generators in states that adopt the Generator Improvements Rule before the September 1, 2021 deadline. Generators can re-notify EPA using paper Form 8700-12, a state equivalent, or online with MyRCRAID in certain states.

Be confident that every employee knows his or her responsibilities for RCRA compliance. The Storing Hazardous Waste–Ops online course will help ensure your SQG personnel are thoroughly familiar with the RCRA requirements and their role in the safe storage and management of hazardous waste. 

EPA Asks TSDFs for Help

To encourage treatment, storage, and disposal facilities to remind their SQG customers about the RCRA re-notification requirement, EPA created a TSDF outreach handout that the facilities can distribute to SQG customers or attach to invoices or emails.

EPA also translated the handout into Spanish, Arabic, Simple Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Russian, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
