Biennial Hazardous Waste Report Information

Biennial Hazardous Waste Report Information

Who needs to report?

All Large Quantity Generators (LQGs), permitted Treatment, Storage & Disposal Facilities (TSDFs), and any other generator that operated as an LQG for any month of 2021 are required to complete the Biennial Hazardous Waste Report (EPA Forms). If you have questions about whether you should complete a report, contact Wendy Edwards at 802-522-0261 or via email at wendy.edwards@vermont.gov

How do I complete the reporting requirement?

  • Electronic Reporting (is the required method): Vermont will be using the RCRAInfo Website to complete the BR Report. Please go to: https://rcrainfo.epa.gov/rcrainfoprod to register and follow the prompts.

  • If a waiver has been approved:

Paper reporting: The EPA forms and the instruction booklet can be found on the EPA’s website at:https://www.epa.gov/hwgenerators/biennial-hazardous-waste-report

New this year:  LQG facilities may opt out of completing Biennial Reports if their notified LQG status is based on the generation of Vermont-listed Hazardous Wastes (any hazardous waste with waste code that begins with VT, such as VT02) and they do not meet the BR criteria listed above. To opt out of this reporting requirement, an industry user must use the Biennial Reporting module through EPA’s RCRAinfo Database to notify the State of VT that they are not subject to BR requirements.  To complete this, select “Create New Submission” in BR Module of RCRAinfo; when prompted to upload or complete data entry, you will see a new line that states “To notify your regulator (State of VT) that you no longer meet the requirements to submit a Biennial Report”- select this option. Please contact Wendy Edwards if you are not sure if this applies to your facility and the program will direct your email to one of our hazardous waste inspectors.

Where can I find a summary of my facility’s waste shipped in 2021?

Manifest information can be accessed directly via the Environmental Research Tool ERT (This application will also allow you to search the other databases maintained by the Waste Management & Prevention Division). Use the Hazardous Waste Generators link, and your EPA ID# to find information for your facility; click the “view” button and please take a moment to review the information for accuracy. At the bottom of the page you will find the text: ‘View manifest report’. Clicking this link will bring you to a screen where you can enter a date range and view all manifests in our database.
 

When is the report due?

The deadline to submit the report is March 31, 2022.
 

Does Vermont require the completion of the Off-Site Identification (OI) form? No.

If a Waiver has been approved, what is the mailing address to send paper copies and the signature page of electronic copies?
