SQGS are on NOTICE
With presidential elections, Covid-19, and everything else going on that is 2020, RCRA may not be at the forefront of your mind. While, that may be true, it is definitely on the minds of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). September 1, 2021 should also be on all small quantity generatorâ€™s (SQG) minds and calendars. Again, I know itâ€™s on the EPAâ€™s calendar and mind. Recently, they reminded hazardous waste generators who adopted the revised hazardous waste standards (2016 Generator Improvements Rules), that RCRA re-notification will be required once every FOUR years starting September 1, 2021.
Again, this only applies to SQGâ€™s in states that adopt the revised waste standards before the September 1, 2021 deadline. At the last tally, there were over 20+ states adopting the new standards. For a complete list click HERE.
You may be asking yourself â€œHow do I re-notify them?â€ Well, generators can re-notify the EPA using the EPAâ€™s paper Form 8700-12 or the MYRCRAID system. For a list of states where MYRCAID is available click HERE.
Also, in an effort to help remind SQG about the RCRA re-notification requirements, the EPA has created a TSDF handout that facilities can disseminate to small quantity generators.
