Instructions For Preparing The RCRA C Site Identification Form; Notification of Hazardous Waste Activity
The initial notification fee is $150 and applies to any new hazardous waste generator and those that change ownership. Municipalities are exempt from this fee.
Typically seven days after the application is deemed complete.
EPA ID numbers do not expire and do not require renewal, and remain associated with the location to which they were originally issued.
Each generator is responsible for keeping their notification information current. EPA ID numbers will remain active unless the Reporting and Information Management Section is notified of a change in generator status. EPA ID numbers can be inactivated or declassified. The Reporting and Information Management Section must be notified within 30 days of a change.
Use the RCRA C Site Identification Formfor changes to street address not due to moving locations, company ownership, and property ownership. Other changes can be made verbally, electronically or in writing according to Env-Hw 504.02 (Env-Hw 500 Requirements for Hazardous Waste Generators).
EPA ID numbers are not transferable to another location.
