Proposed Hazardous Waste Fees 2019 Rulemaking

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 generator status.
