Waste Minimization (SB14) Programs

Every 4 years, qualifying facilities must prepare a new minimization plan and submit the Summary Progress Report (SPR).

Qualifying facilities include those that generated more than 13.2 tons of hazardous waste in 2010.  Wastes that are considered are both RCRA and non-RCRA waste, and are generated on site (even if the generated waste is then treated and/or not manifested).  A common mistake is to not include hazardous waste water that is treated on site and discharged to the sewer, as this waste water does qualify as hazardous waste generated.
