US EPA's Biennial Report Data Collection

Hazardous Waste BarrelsLarge quantity hazardous waste generating facilities (facilities that generate greater than 1,000 kilograms per month) and hazardous waste treatment, storage and/or disposal facilities (TSDFs) complete the Biennial Report to inform the public, the states, and US EPA of their waste generation and management activities. In addition to supplying information for compliance purposes (e.g., to demonstrate the quantity of hazardous waste generated by a particular facility) the Biennial Report helps US EPA and the states to analyze their regulatory programs and assists them in making hazardous waste treatment and disposal capacity determinations. US EPA compiles the data obtained into national reports that contain information on hazardous waste management. For example, the published reports contain statistical information on quantities of hazardous waste generated, which facilities are generating what types of wastes, and management practices.
