DEQ is aligning its hazardous waste fees to better support program needs. The 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 approximately 500 sites generating hazardous waste and two businesses operating permitted treatment, storage, and disposal facilities.
On July 18, 2019, the Oregon Environmental Quality Commission approved a fee increase that will be phased in over six years. For those fees, DEQ will invoice generators and permitted facilities at the new rate starting July 21, 2019. The invoice will be based on waste generated from January 2018 to December 2018 as reported to DEQ in 2019. Each subsequent phase of the fee increase will take effect on January 1 of each year.

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
