Hazardous Waste & Toxics Reduction

Reporting Requirements

RCRA Site ID# is obtained by completing a Notification of Dangerous Waste Site ID form also known as a Site ID form. This is required of any site that generates regulated quantities of dangerous waste.

Dangerous Waste Annual Report All facilities/sites that have RCRA site ID numbers are required to complete a Dangerous Waste Annual Report each year.

  • TurboWaste.Net is the electronic reporting system for Dangerous Waste Annual Reporting.
  • Hazardous Waste Facility Search is a search engine to find active or inactive RCRA Site ID numbers within the TurboWaste.Net application.

Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) Facilities may be subject to one or all of the sections depending upon the types and quantities of chemicals stored or released. Ecology represents the State Emergency Response Commission and records this information and tracks reporting compliance for the businesses.

  • Community Right-to-Know Reporting Forms and instructions for reporting EPCRA Sections 302, 304, 311, 312, and 313.
  • Local Emergency Planning Committees (LEPCs) The State Emergency Response Commission (SERC) is responsible for designating LEPCs, most often by county. Note: this is a current list of all LEPCs. LEPCs are responsible for developing local emergency plans for their respective jurisdictions as well as for managing the information submitted by industry, which is made available to the public.
  • Tier Two Electronic Reporting Tier Two Online is an electronic reporting application that provides facilities with an easy method for reporting chemical inventories to the SERC each year.
  • Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Reporting (Form R) Businesses in certain industrial sectors and who use specific chemicals above threshold levels must report annually.
