The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is proposing to
align its hazardous waste fees to better support program needs. The proposed
fees will ensure DEQ continues to implement the state’s federally delegated
hazardous waste management program while providing technical assistance to many
more business. These fees will affect 500 sites generating hazardous waste and
two businesses operating permitted treatment, storage, and disposal facilities.
If approved by the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission in May 2019, the new fees will be phased in over six years. DEQ will invoice generators and permitted facilities at the new rate starting July 1, 2019, for waste generated during calendar year 2018 as reported to DEQ in 2019.

Purpose of HazWaste.net
HazWaste.net is DEQ’s online system for
submitting the annual hazardous waste report. All small and large quantity
hazardous waste generators are required to submit an annual report to DEQ. The
report is due March 1st of every year and provides information on activities of
the previous calendar year. In late December of every year a letter is mailed to
remind small and large quantity generators of this reporting requirement.
We encourage you to use HazWaste.net as a management tool to track waste
shipments and to compare to your prior year’s shipments. You’ll find helpful
hints plus validation checks to help identify and correct errors before your
data is submitted to DEQ.
Registered Conditionally Exempt Generators will not receive an annual
reminder letter because CEGs are not required to submit an annual report unless
there has been a change in generator status or site information. If your
company’s generator status goes above the CEG limit in any one month an annual
report is due for that calendar year.
All registered generators can use HazWaste.net throughout the year to report
business closures, to update site contact information, or to report a change in
