Annual Manifest Report and Biennial Hazardous Waste Reporting

Report Description

The Annual Manifest and Biennial Hazardous Waste reports document the types and amounts of RCRA hazardous wastes that are generated, shipped off-site, treated on site and/or received from off-site.

Date Due:

  • Reports must be postmarked by March 1.
  • Extensions until April 1 may be granted. Send your request, via email, to OLQ Regulatory Reporting and specify the reason for the request. Extension requests on or after March 1st will not be considered.

New for 2020 (2019 Activity):

Annual and Biennial reports must now be submitted electronically via myRCRAid. IDEM now requires both Large and Small Quantity Generators to use the Form GM for reporting in odd and even numbered reporting years.

U.S. EPA has produced a free online training resource (Learning Zen) with instructions on how to register as an industry user and how to complete biennial reporting. We strongly recommend this training.

IDEM has provided step-by-step instructions for filling out your form. We strongly suggest you open or print these files when using myRCRAid, especially the first time. You must register as an industry user in myRCRAid before completing an initial notification or updating an existing U.S. EPA ID number.

Detailed instructions regarding regulated waste notifications may be found at the following link. IDEM greatly prefers that you submit initial and subsequent notifications via myRCRAid, but will accept paper submittals. Please note that submitting paper notifications will significantly increase processing time.

Who Must File and Which Report Must be Submitted

Small Quantity Generators Annual Manifest Report

  • Any facility that was a Small Quantity Generator (SQG) at least one month of the year, but was not a Large Quantity Generator any month during the year, must submit the Annual Manifest report.
  • Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators (CESQG) that for any one calendar month generate more than 220 pounds or accumulate on-site at any time more than 2,200 pounds of hazardous waste will also be required to complete and submit the Annual Manifest report.
Report Year Date Due Forms Required Report Required
Every year March 1, every year SI, GM Annual Manifest Report

Large Quantity Generators Biennial Hazardous Waste Report or Annual Manifest Report

  • Any facility that was a Large Quantity Generator (LQG) at least one month of the year must submit either an Annual Manifest report OR a Hazardous Waste Biennial report depending on the year.
Report Year Date Due Forms Required Report Required
Odd numbered years March 1, even year SI, GM Biennial Report

Treatment, Storage, Disposal Facilities Biennial Report or Annual Manifest Report

Any facility that was a permitted Treatment, Storage, or Disposal facility (TSD) during the report year must submit either an Annual Manifest report OR a Hazardous Waste Biennial report depending on the year. Facilities that are undergoing closure, but have not yet received final approval from IDEM must continue to report. If no waste was received during the year and the facility is not operating as a generator of any type, the ID form should be submitted.

Report Year Date Due Forms Required Report Required
Odd numbered years March 1, even year SI, GM, WR, OI Biennial Report
Even numbered years March 1, odd year SI, GM, WR, OI Annual Manifest Report

If Your Facility is not an LQG, SQG, OR TSD

  • If your facility was not an LQG, SQG, or TSD facility in any month of the year no report is required.
  • However, if you received a reporting reminder in December you MUST register and complete a subsequent notification in myRCRAid to update your generator status appropriately. This is necessary so that we can document that you were not an LQG or SQG during the report year and do not owe a report. Even if the business is no longer active the entire report is still required if the facility acted as an SQG or LQG in any one month during the report year.

Handler Identification Form

IDEM no longer uses the Hazardous Waste Handle Identification Form (State Form 55770). All site information updates must be made via myRCRAid
