Federal regulations require all RCRA hazardous waste Large Quantity Generators (LQGs) to submit a report, every 2 years, summarizing the waste they generated and where it went. This “Biennial Report” is due by March 1 of each even-numbered year, and it covers hazardous waste generated the previous year (2019, this go-round). You may ask, “How do I know whether this applies to me?” Simple:
- You are a RCRA LQG if your site generates in any month more than 1,000 kilograms of hazardous waste, more than 1 kg of acutely hazardous (P-list) waste or more than 100 kg of acute hazardous waste spill debris or residue.
- Only RCRA hazardous waste counts towards this total, not non-RCRA waste (for California generators), universal waste or medical waste.
