Ohio EPA 2015 Hazardous Waste Reports are due on March 1, 2016. This report is required of any facility that generated more than 2200 pounds of hazardous waste (or 2.2 lbs. of acute hazardous waste) in any calendar month in 2015.
For 2015 there are no changes to the reporting process, which means no changes to the eBusiness Center data entry screens or paper forms. The only change for this year’s report is the exclusion of the Waste Code U202. This code, indicating saccharin, is no longer considered a hazardous waste.
Ohio EPA is encouraging all businesses that have filed on paper, to consider using the eDRUMS reporting site. The eDRUMS software has many features that help you prepare the report quickly and more accurately than on paper, including the ability to copy a previous year’s report as a starting point for a new report, even if you haven’t filed electronically in the past.
If you have questions please contact Thomas Babb, Ohio EPA Hazardous Waste Report Coordinator, at (614) 914-2527.
