BIENNIAL HAZARDOUS WASTE REPORT
This site contains archived documents regarding Biennial Hazardous Waste reporting.
NEW Effective October 26, 2011, the Nevada Legislative Commission issued final approval of Petition R030-11. Approval of this regulation makes the State requirement for biennial hazardous waste reporting consistent with Federal regulations. Therefore, Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators and Small Quantity Generators are no longer required to submit a biennial hazardous waste report.
NEW ONLY businesses that generated, treated, stored or disposed hazardous waste, at or above threshold quantities (i.e., Large Quantity Generators and Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities), during 2011, are required to complete and submit a Biennial Hazardous Waste Report.
The Hazardous Waste Biennial Generator Report must be submitted, on-line, to the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection by March 1, 2012.
