The Annual Hazardous Waste Report is used by IDEM to collect information about RCRA hazardous waste activity at facilities throughout the state. This report documents the types and amounts of hazardous wastes that are generated, shipped, treated, and/or received at a site during a calendar year. Each report should be submitted using the RCRAInfo portal.
Who Must File and Which Report Must Be Submitted
Small Quantity Generators and Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators
Any facility that was a Small Quantity Generator (SQG) at least one month of the year, but was not a Large Quantity Generator (LQG) any month during the year, must submit the Annual Manifest Report. A Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator (CESQG) that accumulates more than 2,200 pounds of hazardous waste on-site at any time is considered a SQG for reporting purposes, and is required to complete and submit the Annual Manifest report. It is due by March 1 each year and covers the activity of the previous calendar year.
Large Quantity Generators
Any facility that was an LQG at least one month of the year must submit an Annual Manifest Report. Reports are due by March 1.
Treatment, Storage, Disposal Facilities
Any facility that was a permitted Treatment, Storage, or Disposal facility (TSD) during the report year must submit an Annual Manifest Reports are due by March 1. 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, a report still needs to be submitted.
If Your Facility is Not an LQG, SQG, or TSD
If your facility was not an LQG, SQG, or TSD in any month of the previous calendar year, no report is required. However, if you received a reporting reminder in December you must enter a new submission in RCRAInfo to document that you were not an LQG or SQG during the 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 Even if the business is no longer active, the entire report is still required if the facility acted as an SQG or LQG in any one month during the year.
