Please note that there has been a change in the electronic filing procedure this year – if the Annual report is normally filed electronically (recommended), be aware that the electronic filing vendor used in the past through NYS DEC is no longer supporting NY State Hazardous Waste Annual Report filing. NY Generators that want to continue to file electronically must transition to reporting via the EPA’s RCRAInfo system. This  may take up to possibly a week to get an approved login if there is not already one in place. Follows a link for instructions on filing electronically: Instructions for Filing Your Hazardous Waste Report Electronically section.

Also note that for WTS clients where WTS manages the clients total Hazardous Waste inventory, a report suitable for filing with NYS DEC can be generated through our LMwts system. Contact your WTS representative for further details.
