The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) established a national system of solid waste control along with waste management requirements for both hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams. RCRA Subtitle C regulates hazardous waste generation to ensure that it is properly being managed from generation to disposal (cradle-to-grave). The Biennial Report is one of the reporting requirements that serves as a tool used by the EPA and states to collect, track, and maintain information about the generation, management, and disposition of RCRA-regulated hazardous wastes.
Businesses classified as Large Quantity Generators (LQG) are those businesses which meet anyone of the conditions listed below during any single calendar month of a reporting year (odd numbered year):
- Generate 2,200 pounds or more of hazardous wastes
- Generate more than 2.2 pounds of any acute hazardous wastes
- Generate more than 220 pounds of residue or contaminated debris from a spill of any acute hazardous waste
LQGs are required to submit a Biennial Report by the March 1st deadline of the following even numbered year. The Biennial Report requires businesses to identify the types and quantities of hazardous wastes handled, and provide details on how the material was managed including its generation, treatment, disposition or shipment for off-site management.
