Hazardous Waste Management : Biennial Report

Contact: Linda Weglewski, Linda.Weglewski@dnr.ga.gov, 404.657.8839

The Hazardous Waste Report is the implementing guidance to support the reporting by large quantity hazardous waste generators (LQGs) and treatment, storage, or disposal facilities (TSDFs) required by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA). RCRA Sections 3002 and 3004, as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA), requires reporting to EPA or to authorized states at least every two years. EPD adopts federal hazardous waste regulations by reference. The Biennial Hazardous Waste Report is collected nationally every two years. EPD has completed collection of the 2017 data.  2018 is not a reporting year.  Data will again be collected in early 2020 for calendar year 2019.

Hazardous Waste Management : Waste Reduction Plan

Contact:  Linda Weglewski, Linda.Weglewski@dnr.ga.gov, 404.657.8839

All Large Quantity Generators (LQGs) are required to submit a Waste Reduction Plan every two years at the time of the Biennial Report (see section above). This plan is to outline current waste production at the facility and plans for future reduction of that waste. EPD has completed collection of the 2018 Waste Reduction Plans in conjunction with the 2017 Biennial Report.  Plans will again be collected in early 2020 to reflect future waste reduction efforts along with accomplishments from prior plans.

Hazardous Waste Management: RCRA Permit Application Part A

Contact: Hazardous Waste Management Program, 404.656.2833

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires anyone who owns or operates a facility where hazardous waste is treated, stored, or disposed of to have a permit. RCRA establishes a procedure for obtaining interim status which allows existing facilities to continue operating until a final hazardous waste permit is issued. This form and associated instructions are submitted to the State of Georgia and are required for a federal permit to treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The form defines the processes to be used for treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous wastes; the design capacity of such processes and the specific hazardous wastes to be handled at a facility. Interim status is also explained.
