EPA ID and Tracking Hazardous Waste

Hazardous Waste is tracked “cradle-to-grave,” from generation to final disposal.  Site and/or business-specific EPA Identification numbers, hazardous waste manifests, and reporting information are used to keep track of how much hazardous waste is generated, where it is generated, and its final management or disposal method.

  • EPA ID Number
  • Hazardous Waste Manifests
  • Hazardous Waste Reporting

An EPA identification number is a unique number assigned to sites that allows states and EPA to track activities regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

A hazardous waste manifest is a shipping document that tracks waste from the generator to a permitted hazardous waste treatment, storage, or disposal facility (TSDF). The manifest allows waste generators to verify that wastes have been properly delivered at the final destination. A manifest and EPA ID number must accompany hazardous waste any time it is moved off site. In 2018, EPA launched the e-manifest tracking system, which tracks hazardous waste shipping electronically.

Small and large quantity generators of hazardous waste are required to report the following to DEQ annually:

  • Types and quantities of hazardous waste generated and shipped in the last year
  • Type and quantity of waste currently stored on site
  • Waste shipped and treated in Idaho or out of state

Operators of hazardous waste disposal facilities are also required to report annually on the types and quantities of received wastes that were generated in Idaho or out of state.

Reports are due to DEQ by January 31 each year using either of the following:

EPA requires large quantity generators and treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDF) to report biennially on the quantities, type, and management of hazardous waste generated, shipped, and received from off-site locations.

Beginning September 2021 and every 4 years thereafter, SQGs must re-notify DEQ of hazardous waste management activities. Use the same process described in the EPA Identification Number tab. Contact DEQ to get the Notification of Regulated Waste form.
