For the remaining questions check the boxes that ONLY apply to your waste activities.

Section 10, Part A – Hazardous Waste Activities

1. Generator of Hazardous Waste
Check the box on the Site ID Form that best describes your generator status. Determining your Generator Status can be difficult. Please contact your Regional office for any questions about your Generator status. Please contact your Regional office for any questions about your generator status. Northwest Regional Office: (425)649-7000, Southwest Regional Office: (360)407-6300, Central Regional Office: (509)575-2490, or Eastern Regional Office: (509)329-3400.

  • LQG - Large Quantity Generator:  Monthly waste generation is 2,200 pounds or more of dangerous waste, or 2.2 pounds or more of WT01 Extremely Hazardous waste or acutely hazardous waste.
  • MQG – Medium Quantity Generator:  Monthly waste generation is 220 pounds or more but less than 2,200 pounds of dangerous waste.  An MQG's accumulation (at any time) is not more than 2,200 pounds for waste with a Quantity Exclusion Limit (QEL) of 2.2 pounds.
  • SQG – Small Quantity Generator:  Monthly waste generation is less than the QEL (220 pounds for most common wastes or 2.2 pounds for WT01 Extremely hazardous waste or acutely hazardous waste and whose accumulation (at any time) is not more than 2,200 pounds for waste with a QEL of 220, or 2.2 pounds for a waste with a QEL of 2.2 pounds.
  • XQG – None Regulated Waste Generator:  Dangerous waste was not generated  during the reporting year, but the site’s RCRA Site ID Number remains active.  This applies to businesses that transport and/or transfer waste but do not generate waste.
Dangerous Waste Generator Status Table
  If the QEL is 2.2 pounds and the waste is EHW: If the QEL is 2.2 pounds and the waste is acute DW: If the QEL is 220 pounds and the waste is EHW or DW:
SQGs generate:
Less than 2.2 pounds Less than 2.2 pounds Less than 220 pounds
SQGs accumulate or store:
2.2 pounds or less 220 pounds or less 2,200 pounds or less, same as MQGs
MQGs generate; There is no MQG status for 2.2 pound wastes, go straight to LQG status At least 220 pounds, but less than 2,200 pounds
MQGs accumulate or store: 2,200 pounds or less, same as SQGs
LQGs generate: 2.2 pounds or more 2.2 pounds or more 2,200 pounds or more
LQGs accumulate or store: More than 2.2 pounds More than 220 pounds More than 2,200 pounds

2. Frequency of Generation
Check the box that best describes how often you generate dangerous waste.

  1. Monthly: Generate waste at least once each month.
  2. Batch: Generate waste less frequently than once a month.
  3. One-time only: Waste generation is a one-time only occurrence.

3. Transporter of Hazardous Waste
Transporters physically move waste off site from one site to another by air, rail, highway, or water.  If you transport dangerous waste, check the appropriate box(es) to indicate whether you transport your own waste (SQG’s only can select this) or transport for commercial purposes.

Mark both boxes if both classification apply. To register as a transfer facility, mark Section 10.A.5.

The Federal Highway Administration at (360)753-9875 has US Department of Transportation (USDOT) information. Call the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (WUTC) at (360)753-6423 for motor carrier safety regulations.

4. Recycler of On-Site Waste
On-site recycling means to use, reuse, or reclaim a material after it has been generated.

  • Do not check this box if you send your waste off-site to a Treatment, Storage, Disposal, or Recycling (TSDR) facility for recycling.
  • Check this box if you:
  1. Have waste that is recycled without prior accumulation, i.e. it is "hard-piped" in a closed loop system. You must get a Site ID Number (notify) for this activity, but do not count the amounts toward your generator status and do not report it in your future annual reports.
  2. Accumulated waste on-site before recycling. You must get a Site ID Number (notify) for this activity, count the amounts toward your generator status and report it in your future annual reports.

5. Transfer Facility of Hazardous Waste
A transfer facility is any transportation related facility where shipments of dangerous waste are held, consolidated, or transferred within a period of ten days or less during the normal course of transportation, including:

  • loading docks
  • parking areas
  • storage areas
  • buildings
  • piers
  • other similar areas

6. Permit-by-Rule (PBR)
Please refer to the Dangerous Waste Regulations (WAC 173-303-802) for a list and description of Permit-by-Rule facilities, activities, and conditions.

Check this box if the description applies to your site location.

7. Treatment-by-Generator (TBG)
Check this box if you are a generator who treats your own waste on site, and use accumulation tanks or containers according to standards established by Technical Information Memorandum (TIM) 96- 412 Treatment by Generator.

Go to www.ecy.wa.gov/biblio/96412.html or contact Ecology for a copy. Note the type of of treatment in the comment section such as neutralization, filtration, solidification and stabilization, carbon adsorption, evaporation, or separation.

8. Generator of Mixed Radioactive Waste
Check this box if you generate, accumulate, or manage mixed radioactive waste.

Mixed radioactive waste is a radioactive waste means a dangerous waste, extremely hazardous waste or acutely hazardous waste that contains both a nonradioactive hazardous component and, as defined by 10 CFR 20.1003, source, special nuclear, or by-product material subject to the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 (42 U.S.C. 2011 et seq.)

9. Importer of Hazardous Waste
Check this box if you receive any dangerous waste from a foreign country.  An importer brings dangerous waste into Washington State from a foreign country.  This waste is regulated according to WAC 173-303-230(1&2), but it may not be regulated in the country of origin. DO NOT check this box if you import waste from another state in the United States.  

10. Treatment, Storage, Disposal or Recycling (TSDR) Facility
Check this box if you are a TSDR. (This does not apply to most generators.)

TSDR facilities are responsible for the recycling, reusing, reclaiming, transferring, treating, storing or disposing of dangerous waste. RCRA permit or interim status may be required for this type of facility. For more information contact Ecology at 1-800-874-2022 (within state) or (360) 407-6737, or e-mail us at TurboWaste@ecy.wa.gov.
Note: A business that recycles its own dangerous waste on-site is not a TSDR.

11. Recycler of Dangerous Waste Received from Off-Site
Check this box only if you receive dangerous wastes from off site and then recycle it. (Does not apply to most generators.) The recycling activity must be regulated under WAC 173-303-120 of the state dangerous waste regulations.

12. Dangerous Waste Fuel Activity
Used oil fuels are not dangerous waste fuels. See Section 10, Part C. If you generate,market, blend, or burn dangerous waste fuel, check the appropriate box(es) to indicate your waste fuel activities.

  1. Generator of dangerous waste fuel: A person who generates dangerous waste fuel or any fuel that contains dangerous waste burned for energy recovery in a boiler or industrial furnace, as long as the boiler or industrial furnace is not regulated as a hazardous waste incinerator.
  2. Generator who markets to a burner: A person who sends their waste fuel directly to a burner.
  3. Other marketers:
    • Distributors: A person who distributes but does not process or blend dangerous waste fuel. Distributors may broker fuel by arranging for the final disposition of the fuel.
    • Blenders: A person who produces, processes, or blends fuel from dangerous wastes.
  4. Burner:
    If you burn dangerous waste fuel on-site, check the appropriate box to indicate the type(s) of combustion devices in which dangerous waste fuel is burned.
    1. Utility boiler: A boiler used to produce electricity, steam, or heated or cooled air for sale.
    2. Industrial boiler: A boiler located on the site of a facility that is engaged in a mechanical or chemical manufacturing process to transform substances into new products, including the component parts of products.
    3. Industrial furnace: Any of the following enclosed devices that are integral components of manufacturing processes and that use controlled flame combustion to recover materials or energy:
    • Cement kilns
