Is your facility a Small Quantity Generator (SQG) of hazardous waste? If so, you must re-notify the state of your status as a SQG by September 1st of this year. To re-notify, businesses must submit the EPA Site Identification form known as Form 8700-12. This form can be submitted online into EPA’s information system at the RCRA Info website. If you do not have an account in the system, the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection has step by step instructions to help you set it up. Not only can you re-notify through this website, but you can also submit manifests through your RCRA Info account.
If you prefer not to use the online system you may submit a paper notification, with an ink signature, to the state by sending your completed Form 8700-12 to:
Nevada Division of Environmental Protection
Bureau of Sustainable Materials Management
Attention: Notification Program
901 South Stewart Street, Suite 4001
Carson City, Nevada 89701-5249
Regardless of how you submit the form, it is helpful to include the reason for the submittal on the form. Box number 18 on Form 8700-12 provides space for your comments. Providing a comment such as “This form is submitted to fulfill our SQG Re-notification requirement”, will assist the state in processing the information.
While the requirement is straightforward, it does take some time to complete the form. Summer will go by fast! Fill out your form early and enjoy the summer without this deadline looming at the end of the season. Need help in filling out your form? Contact us for assistance.
Don’t have time to prepare and submit the form now? Sign up to get reminders throughout the summer by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you want to be added to BEP’s SQG email list.
