Illinois Hazardous Waste Annual Report

Illinois Hazardous Waste Annual Report

Illinois EPA is electing to utilize U.S. EPA's federal Biennial Report System, but using the Annual Report Module in alternate years, for entities that are required to report hazardous waste generation or management information. U.S. EPA has enhanced the Biennial Reporting System to accommodate states, like Illinois, that require annual hazardous waste reporting. This will mean individuals that submit reports to Illinois EPA on behalf of the regulated companies will need to be registered through RCRAInfo to enter data or submit the report. Approval for one module will automatically be for both. 

To Register:  Go to  https://rcrainfo.epa.gov/rcrainfoprod/action/secured/login and click on Register. Then, click on "Continue to Industry User Registration" and complete the forms. Once you have received approval, you can begin to work on the actual report.

Illinois EPA highly recommends each company required to complete the Illinois Annual Hazardous Waste Report have one company officer or manager sign up for Site Manager role in RCRAInfo. This needs to be someone with a company email account, not a personal email, as only company employees will be granted this right without additional information (see below, "If you have no company email").

Once a Site Manager is approved to provide company data in RCRAInfo, that company employee may approve other employees or contractors (see "contractor" below) as Site Manager or to work on, view, and sign the reports (Preparer, Viewer, or Certifier) and/or e-manifests. We recommend that each company have two people with the Site Manager role, in case one is out of the office, but a second is not required. 

Hard copies of reports may still be submitted but should not be necessary for most companies.  https://rcrapublic.epa.gov/rcrainfoweb/documents/rcra_subtitleC_forms_and_instructions.pdf

and will have to be printed and mailed to the address shown below.

If you have no company email, send a letter on company letterhead requesting that someone be granted Site Manager role rights. Include your company's U.S. EPA ID number, the requested person's name, e-mail, and the ID they plan to use. Send the request to:

Illinois Environmental Protection Agency

Attn:  #24 HAR

PO Box 19276

In order for a contractor to work on your report, you will need to have an officer or manager signed up for Site Manager role and they can approve the contractor for annual report work.  You can also send a letter to the above address, requesting that we approve a contractor to work on the report for you; we will need that before the contractor requests approval on your behalf. Please note, this is for your company's protection.  

The Generator fee of $500 remains in effect for anyone that was a Large Quantity Generator in one or more months during the year. When your payment is submitted, please ensure a cover letter or the check memo includes "Large Quantity Generator Fee" and has your company identification number, in order for us to properly credit your account. Submit your payment to:
