Hazardous Waste Management: Biennial Report

The Hazardous Waste Report is the implementing guidance to support the reporting by hazardous waste generators 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. 2004 was not a national reporting year. No forms packages were sent to Large Quantity Generators or Treatment, Storage or Disposal facilities this year (2005). 2005 will be a reporting year and report packages will be mailed in early 2006 for reporting of 2005 information on the quantities, type, and management method of generated hazardous wastes and hazardous wastes received from off site. Forms will be due by March 1, 2006.

Hazardous Waste Management: Waste Reduction Plan

All Large Quantity Generators (LQG) 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. Since 2004 was not a Biennial Report year, a Waste Reduction Plan is not required for 2005. Forms will be sent with the Biennial Report package in early 2006. The 2006 Waste Reduction Plan will be due by March 1, 2006.

Hazardous Waste Management: RCRA Notification

This form and associated instructions are designed to help you determine if you are subject to the requirements under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) for notifying the State of Georgia of your regulated waste activities. The instructions will assist you in obtaining an U.S. EPA Identification Number by completing and submitting EPA Form 8700-12 for initial notifications, or in revising EPA Form 8700-12 subsequent notifications. You are required to complete an EPA Form 8700-12 whenever any of the facility information contained on the form changes. The instructions also include appendices on typical waste streams produced by small quantity generators and typical waste streams and EPA Hazardous Waste Numbers. This link is to .

Hazardous Waste Management: RCRA Permit Application Part A

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires anyone who owns or operates a facility where hazardous waste is treated, stored, or disposed 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.

Storm Water



April 28, 2005 Update: The 2005 - 2010 NPDES General Permit No. GAR000000 for Storm Water Discharges Associated with Industrial Activity has been appealed by two parties. The permit has therefore been stayed pending an administrative hearing, and will not become effective as planned on May 2, 2005. The Notice of Intent (Version 2005) will not be released until the appeals are resolved and the permit is either reinstated or reissued. The extended 1998 - 2003 General Permit will remain in effect until that time, and all industrial storm water dischargers should continue to meet the requirements of that permit.

EPD will provide further updates on this website periodically.
