Solid Waste Reporting

Certain solid waste operations that are permitted or registered in Indiana are required to submit periodic reports to IDEM. These various reports allow IDEM to track the amount of waste handled by each facility, and they help identify trends.

Solid Waste Land Disposal Facility Quarterly Report

All permitted landfills in the state are required to submit a Land Disposal Facility Quarterly Report within 15 days of the end of each calendar quarter to summarize the amount, type, and origin of the waste that was disposed there. This report must be submitted electronically through Re-TRAC Connect.

Solid Waste Processing Facility Quarterly Report

All permitted processing facilities, transfer stations, and incinerators in the state are required to submit a Processing Facility Quarterly Report within 15 days of the end of each calendar quarter to summarize the amount, type, and origin of the waste that was handled at the permitted facility. The report also tracks where the waste is sent afterwards, and the amount sent to each destination. It must be submitted electronically through Re-TRAC Connect.

Solid Waste Quarterly Fees Report

All permitted landfills and incinerators must submit a Quarterly Fees Report that summarizes the total amount of waste disposed each quarter, and pay a fee based on the tonnage. The quantities reported should be virtually identical to the totals from the quarterly reports above. Facilities that owe this fee will receive an email each quarter with a copy of the report form to complete and submit with their payment.

Composting Facility Annual Report

All registered composting facilities must submit a Composting Facility Report by January 31 each year, summarizing the amount and type of material received during the previous calendar year. The report also indicates what happened to the material. This report must be submitted electronically through Re-TRAC Connect.

Waste Tire Annual Report

All registered waste tire transporters, processors, and storage facilities must submit a Waste Tire Annual Report before January 31 each year, summarizing the quantity of waste tires that were transported, processed, and/or stored during the previous calendar year. This report must be submitted electronically through Re-TRAC Connect.

Land Capacity Survey / Flyover Map

This flyover map must be submitted by every permitted municipal solid waste landfill by June 15 each year. It is used to calculate their remaining capacity. The survey must be conducted between December 1 and March 31 to create a map that shows the current contours of the landfill. It should be submitted by email to the Regulatory Reporting section.
