2Objectives Purpose of the Biennial Report Parts of the Biennial Report Introduction to EASITRAK electronic reportingFrequently Asked Questions
3Purpose of the Biennial Report The Biennial Report information will:Provide the EPA and the States with an understanding of hazardous waste generation and management in the United States.Help the EPA measure the quality of the environment.Inform the public through the publication of the National Biennial RCRA Hazardous Waste Report.
4National Biennial RCRA Hazardous Waste Report Consists of three volumes:Volume 1: National AnalysisPresents a detailed look at national waste handling practices by region, states, and largest facilities nationally.
5Continued: National Biennial RCRA Hazardous Waste Report Volume 2: State Detail AnalysisA detailed look at each State’s waste handling practices, including overall totals for generation, management, and shipments and receipts, as well as totals for the largest fifty facilities in each State.Volume 3: List of Reported RCRA SitesIdentifies every hazardous waste facility in the United States that submitted a hazardous waste report.
6Why does my facility have to file a Biennial Report? 40 CFRThe authority for the Hazardous Waste Report is contained in Sections 3002 and 3004 of the RCRA of 1976, as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of (HSWA).
7Who is required to file a Biennial Report? Section 3002 requires large quantity hazardous waste generators to report to the EPA or the authorized States, at least every two years, the quantities, nature, and disposition of generated hazardous waste.Any facility that meets the requirements ( generates MORE than 2200 Lbs. of hazardous waste/month) of a RCRA Large Quantity Generator (LQG) or 2.2 Lbs. acutely hazardous waste (P-listed waste) for at least one calendar month in the odd numbered reporting years (i.e. 2009, 2011 etc.)
8Continued… Who is required to file a Biennial Report? Section 3004, requires reporting to the EPA by treatment, storage, and disposal facilities for the waste they receive.Any facility that treated, stored, or disposed (TSD’s) of RCRA hazardous wastes on site for at least one calendar month in the odd numbered reporting years.
9Continued… Who is required to file a Biennial Report? TSD facilities, which are undergoing closure or with a post-closure permit, must complete the Biennial Report Form until the 30-year post-closure period is completed.Facilities undergoing clean closure under RCRA must submit this report until certification of clean closure is received and certified by the DEQ.
10What do I need to include in the Biennial Report? Hazardous Waste(HW) that was:Generated and accumulated on site during 2009, even if it’s not shipped off site until 2010;OR…..
11Continued…. What do I need to include in the Biennial Report? HW generated and accumulated on site in but not shipped off site until 2009; orHW imported from a foreign country in a reporting year (2009).Any hazardous waste generated and accumulated on-site and/or waste shipped off site in 2009 (odd numbered year) must be reported.
12Is there anything that I do not include on the Biennial Report? DO NOT include Materials and wastes addressed under 40 CFR 261.4(a) and (b) and (c). Examples:Do not include materials which are excluded from being a solid waste (products)Do not include solid wastes that are excluded from being hazardous waste (non-hazardous waste)Do not include Universal Waste
13Continued: Materials which should not be included Do not include Spent lead-acid batteries (universal waste)Any hazardous wastes generated during battery reclamation must be reported on Form GMDo not include PCB wastes unless mixed with a hazardous waste (universal waste)Do not include Samples undergoing treatability studiesDo not include Hazardous waste that has been collected as a sample for the purpose of determining its characteristic or compositionDo not include Scrap MetalDo not include Used Oil
14When are the Biennial Reports due? Biennial Reports must be submitted electronically or hardcopy to the DEQ's Biennial Report representative by March 1st of (or April 1st if an extension is granted)A 30-day extension can be granted by the ODEQ on a case by case basis making April 1st of the latest a Biennial Report can be accepted.
15Where do I file the Biennial Report? Electronic reporting using EASITRAK is the preferred method for submitting the Biennial Report (easy, step-by-step, data entry and cross-checks for mistakes).2009 version will be accessible late December 2009Biennial Reporting software found at the “Easitrak” web page:Easitrak provides easy, free registration for the user, which includes picking a personal password.
16Parts of the Biennial Report: RCRA Subtitle C Site Identification FormEASITRAK USERS :A hardcopy of this form with signature MUST be mailed to DEQ in addition to electronic filing.GM Form (Waste Generation and Management)Separate form for each waste stream generatedWR Form (Waste Received from Off Site)Separate form for each waste stream receivedOI Form (Off-Site Identification)This form is NOT required for the State of Oklahoma
17Information NOT Required on the Oklahoma Biennial Report Eligible Academic Entities with Laboratories—Notification for opting into or withdrawing from managing laboratory hazardous wastes pursuant to 40 CFR Part 262 Subpart K40 CFR Part 262 Subpart K Has NOT been adopted by Oklahoma DEQWaste Codes for State-Regulated (i.e., non-Federal) Hazardous Wastes.Oklahoma does NOT have State-specific waste codes.Notification of Hazardous Secondary Material (HSM) Activity managing hazardous secondary material under 40 CFR (a)(2)(ii), 40 CFR 261.4(a)(23), (24), or (25)Oklahoma has NOT adopted these rules.DISREGARD THESE SECTIONS IN THE BIENNIAL REPORT
18Using Easitrak 2009 Biennial Reporting Software Introduction toUsing Easitrak Biennial Reporting Software(2009 version will be accessible late December 2009)
19Using EasitrakThe EPA made considerable changes in SI forms this year. Be sure to you visit the EASITRAK documentation page for supporting documentation. If you were an EASITRAK user in 2007 or versions, your site information will automatically transferred to the 2009 version for minimizing your data entry. However, you still need to correct and complete all required SI forms.

31Divided into three sections “GM” Form Continued…Divided into three sectionsThe source, characteristics, and quantity of hazardous waste generatedThe quantity of hazardous waste managed on site and the Management Method usedThe quantity of hazardous waste shipped off site for treatment, disposal, or recycling and the Management Method usedOne form must be filled out for each hazardous waste stream generated
32Section 1A. Waste DescriptionProvide a short narrative description of the wasteGeneral type, source, type of hazard; and/or generic chemical name or primary hazardous constituents.B. EPA hazardous waste codesC. State hazardous waste codes Not applicable
33F. Quantity generated in reporting year D. Source CodeEnter the code that best describes how the hazardous waste was generatedE. Form CodeEnter the code the best corresponds to the physical form or chemical composition of the hazardous waste reported (ash, sludge etc..)F. Quantity generated in reporting year
34G. Units of MeasureNote: if you select a volumetric measure (gallons, liters, or cubic yards), you must also report the density of the wasteDensity is reported in either pounds per gallon (lbs/gal) or specific gravity (sg)*note – conversions will be automatic if filed electronically)
351 Pounds 2 Short Ton (2,000 lbs) 3 Kilograms 4 Metric tons (1,000 kg) CodeUnit of Measure1Pounds2Short Ton (2,000 lbs)3Kilograms4Metric tons (1,000 kg)5Gallons6Liters7Cubic yards
36Weight and Volume Conversions (automatically converted if filed electronically via Easitrak 1 kilogram (kg) =pounds (lbs)1 short ton =2,000 lbs1 metric ton =1,000 kgshort tons1 cubic meter =cubic yards1 cubic yard =27 cubic feet1 liter =gallons
37Section 2 (on-site generation and management) Was any of this waste managed on site?If yes, fill out onsite Management Code and the Quantity disposed, treated, or recycled on site only during the reporting year.
38Section 3 (off-site Shipment of Hazardous Waste) Was any of this waste shipped off site for treatment, disposal, or recycling?If yes, fill out the EPA ID # of facility to which waste was shipped, off-site Management Method Code, and total quantity shipped during reporting year.
39The amounts in Sections 2 and 3 should equal the total of quarterly report amounts Comments SectionThis section can be used for additional room for the waste description, etc. Please note which “block” is being continued.This is also a good place on Form GM to write the stream number from your disposal plan
41Form WRFill out one form per facility from which you have received wasteCan use more than one page if neededForm WR is divided into three identical parts (i.e. waste blocks), labeled Waste 1, Waste 2, Waste 3 (each individual waste stream).
42Each waste block requires the same information A. Description of hazardous wasteB. EPA hazardous waste codesC. State hazardous waste codesNot applicableD. Off-site handler EPA ID #
43E. Quantity received in reporting year F. Unit of Measure Report density if using a volumetric measurementG. Form Code (lab- pack, ash, sludge, etc…)H. Management Method code
44FAQ What happens if we’re late in turning them in? An NOV is issued to your facility and could possibly lead to fines.If a facility receives waste from another facility, do they have to include the extra waste in their biennial report?Yes, the Form WR will need to be filled out.
45FAQ ContinuedIf a waste stream is recycled, does it have to be counted on the biennial report?Yes, unless the material and/or wastes are addressed under 40 CFR 261.4(a) and (b) and (c).Does waste that is treated on-site and becomes non-hazardous, have to be included on the biennial report?Yes, it will be reported in Section 2 of Form GM.
46Can the report be emailed to the DEQ? Faxed? Ans: Electronic or Mail FAQ ContinuedCan the report be ed to the DEQ? Faxed? Ans: Electronic or MailSubmitting the report electronically via Easitrak is the preferred method. s or faxes are not acceptable.Regardless of how the report is submitted, the Site ID form (3 page form) MUST be mailed in to the DEQ.If the information we send turns out to be incorrect for some reason, can we retroactively correct it?Yes, if the report is submitted electronically, the State Biennial Report Representative (Jarrett Keck - or call ) can unlock the report giving you access to make corrections as needed.
47Upcoming Information2009 Hazardous Waste Report Instructions and Forms from EPA (hardcopy version)The Easitrak web page will be noted on the cover letter for the DEQ Biennial Report Notification mailing, November 2009.
