New users to electronic reporting will start at Creating a User Profile. Previous electronic reporters will use their username and password and start at the "Sign-In" page. You may find it useful to print the step-by-step instructions found on the main Web page or the general instructions.

If someone from your company previously filed an annual report electronically and created a user profile, they will be the Data Administrator and you will have a Data Entry User Role. A Data Entry User will not have the ability to submit the report to DEQ. Questions 5 and 6 will further explain this situation.

The annual report reminder letter mailed in December of each year includes the names of active Data Administrators from previous reporting years. The Data Administrator is usually the first person to set up a user profile in HazWaste.net or a subsequent user who has had their user role updated. A Data Administrator has annual report submission rights. Unless designated as a Data Administrator, other users only have data entry roles. Data entry users cannot submit the completed report to DEQ.

Once you sign in to HazWaste.net, your user name and role is displayed on the top left corner of the screen. If you need your user role changed, follow the instructions in the next question.

  • Ask the previous Data Administrator to change your user role by clicking the "Admin" tab located at the top of the Reporting Forms Log screen and click the "Edit Role" link to update roles; or
  • Call or e-mail the Annual Report Hotline and ask that your user role be changed to Data Administrator. In Portland call 503-229-6938 or toll-free in Oregon at 1-844-841-4938. An e-mail request can be sent to hazwaste@deq.state.or.us.
