Hazardous Waste Management Program

The Division provides an outreach program for small businesses that generate less than 2,200 pounds of hazardous waste per month. This program has been successful in helping small businesses understand the requirements necessary for compliance with the hazardous waste management rules specific to small business.

Each year approximately 50 companies are visited using this program. A checklist is provided to assist the company with their hazardous waste management practices. Additionally, hazardous waste inspection checklists, factsheets, and other information to help your company ensure compliance with the regulations can be found in this page’s left menu. Hazardous waste staff are available to answer questions: (801) 536-0200.

In conjunction with the outreach program, Judy Moran (jmoran@utah.gov), (385) 499-0184 or Erika Greenwell (egreenwell@utah.gov),  (385) 499-0346 will provide basic hazardous waste training sessions (about two hours) for businesses. They also provide presentations on hazardous waste management and pollution prevention for schools (all levels) and community groups.

EPA ID Number

If you need to notify the Division of regulated waste management activities including new notifications, changes in your waste generation, notification of hazardous secondary materials activity, episodic generation, or consolidation of VSQG hazardous waste, then use the following links:

Signed forms may be emailed to Kaci McNeill (kmcneill1@utah.gov).

e-Manifest

EPA has established a national system for tracking hazardous waste shipments electronically. This system, known as “e-Manifest,” modernizes the nation’s cradle-to-grave hazardous waste tracking process while saving valuable time, resources, and dollars for industry and states. Visit the e-Manifest page to sign up for email updates, find out about FAQs, and much more.

RCRAINFO Industry Application – MYRCRAID

Submit your RCRA Subtitle C 8700-12 forms electronically. No more printing, signing, or mailing. Enter and submit your data online and receive an email notification when your data has been accepted.

Biennial Hazardous Waste Report

All large quantity hazardous waste generators and treatment, storage, and disposal facilities in the State are required to submit a hazardous waste generation and management report to the Division every even year by March 1.

The State of Utah uses the RCRA Industry Application software administered by the EPA for the Biennial Report due March 1 of even numbered years. Filers are strongly urged to submit their report electronically. Flat file upload is available for interested facilities.

All data is reviewed and evaluated by the Division prior to being forwarded to the EPA. Past years’ data can be found at RCRA Info Web. The Division also produces the Utah Hazardous Waste Generation and Management Report  every two years. For more information contact Kaci McNeill (kmcneill1@utah.gov).

You may mail your Biennial Report to:

Douglas J. Hansen, Director
Division of Waste Management and Radiation Control
P.O. Box 144880
Salt Lake City, Utah 84114-4880

Authorization

The Division must submit periodic updates to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) describing the status of the State’s hazardous waste program. These updates include all proposed state program changes requiring EPA approval in order to maintain authorization for the State to administer federal requirements under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Utah received authorization from EPA for its base program in 1984. A listing of the rules for which Utah has received authorization is available on the Web.

Rule Making

The Division coordinates all hazardous waste rule (R315-17101102103124260261262263264265266268270273) changes under the Utah Solid and Hazardous Waste Act and used oil rule (R315-15) changes under the Used Oil Act to ensure that state administrative rulemaking procedures are followed and that the public has an opportunity to provide input, as well as providing support for state and federal operating database programs such as used oil.
