2018 Biennial Report: Who Needs to Submit?
The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires large quantity waste generators to submit a report every two years detailing their hazardous waste activities generated in the year prior. This is referred to as a Biennial Report or the National Biennial RCRA Hazardous Waste Report.
According to the EPA, the Biennial Report form (EPA form 8700-13A/B) must be submitted to the authorized state agency or EPA regional office by March 1 of every even-numbered year. This means that the next Biennial Report is due by March 1, 2018, and should report activities from calendar year 2017.
While the 2017 calendar year is not over yet, it's not too soon to begin thinking about your report if your facility qualifies to submit one. So, does your organization need to submit a Biennial Report? Read below to see the EPA's qualifications for reporting.
The EPA states that your facility needs to submit a Biennial Report if it meets any of the following criteria:
- The site generated, in any single calendar month, 1,000 kg (2,200 lbs) or more of RCRA hazardous waste; or
- The site generated, in any single calendar month, or accumulated at any time, more than 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of RCRA acute hazardous waste; or
- The site generated, in any single calendar month, or accumulated at any time, more than 100 kg (220 lbs) of spill clean up material contaminated with RCRA acute hazardous waste.
