PUB2254

Each hazardous waste generator is obligated to comply with various requirements to properly dispose of hazardous waste. This fact sheet summarizes the main things to do to when becoming a hazardous waste generator or when hazardous waste is no longer generated..

Registration
All small quantity and large quantity generators of hazardous waste are required to register with the department's Hazardous Waste Program by completing and filing a Notification of Regulated Waste Activity form (MO 780-1164). Conditionally exempt generators (those generating less than 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month and accumulating less than 220 pounds of hazardous waste at any one time) may choose to register also but are not required to do so.

For purposes of registration, small quantity generators are those generating between 220 and 2,200 pounds of non-acute hazardous waste in a calendar month or accumulating 220 pounds or more before having it shipped off-site. Large quantity generators are those generating more than 2,200 pounds of non-acute hazardous waste or 2.2 pounds of acute hazardous waste in a calendar month.

If an operation is conducted at more than one location within a city, county or state, each individual site producing hazardous waste will require a separate registration.

A $100 registration fee is required at the time of initial registration. If a particular site has already been issued identification numbers at some time in the past but the registration has been inactive, then an updated registration form and the $100 fee are required to make the re-activation.

To register your site as a hazardous waste generator, you must complete and file a Notification of Regulated Waste Activity form (MO780-1164). After completing the form, retain a copy for records and submit the original with the $100 registration fee to:

Missouri Department of Natural Resources
Hazardous Waste Program
Budget and Planning Section
P.O. Box 176
Jefferson City, MO 65102-0176

After reviewing the registration form the Hazardous Waste Program will issue two numbers to identify the site:

Reporting
All small quantity and large quantity generators are required to file reports with the Hazardous Waste Program. The form to use is the Generator’s Hazardous Waste Summary Report (MO 780-1097). All information needed to complete this report is available in on your manifest documents.

This version may be printed and filled out by hand or with a typewriter.

Additionally, a Web Based E-Reporting option is now available.

Waste Fees
Generators of hazardous waste are required to pay certain fees each year based on the amount of waste generated and how the waste is disposed. Invoices for these fees are calculated based on information from the Generator’s Hazardous Waste Summary Report filed by each registered generator.

Invoices are sent each November to generators based on the amount of hazardous waste they reported during the previous reporting year. Payment for these invoices is due on or before Jan. 1. Failure to pay the assessed fees by the due date will result in a 15 percent late fee being added to the invoice total. For late payments of the land disposal fee, interest at the rate of 10 percent annually will be charged in addition to the 15 percent late fee.

Tonnage Fee
Generators with regulated quantities of hazardous waste are assessed the In-State Tonnage Fee based on the amount of waste they reported. This fee is $5 per ton or portion of a ton, with a $150 minimum and a maximum of $52,000 per site. The minimum fee applies to those generating more than 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month or accumulating that amount before shipping off-site.

Land Disposal Fee
Generators that dispose of their waste into or onto the land will also be charged $25 per ton for all waste disposed of in this manner. This fee is not charged unless there is more than 10 tons of waste disposed of in this manner and there is no maximum fee.

Registration Renewal Fee
Generators that have hazardous waste on a continuing basis and must keep their registration active beyond the initial year of registration are required to pay a $100 annual registration renewal fee.

Inactivating Your Registration
Notify the department when you are no longer generating hazardous waste and wish to inactivate your registration.

To inactivate registration, send a letter requesting the inactivation of the registration to the address below. After the department receives the request and has confirmed all required reporting has been filed, the registration will be inactivated.
