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.
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).
