Box 10A - Type of Regulated Waste Activity

1 - Generator of Hazardous Waste
- Indicate your current or normal hazardous waste activity at the time of completion of the report. If the report is being completed for a one-time event and no waste will be generated again at the site, then indicate 'N'. If you indicate 'Y', you must pick one of the three categories a, b or c. Check the 'Y'/'N' boxes under other generator activities as appropriate. The first question asking if you are an importer of hazardous waste from another country. The second question asks if you generate mixed hazardous and radioactive waste.

3 - Treater, Storer, or Disposer of Hazardous Waste (at your site) - Do you treat, store over 90 days, or dispose of hazardous waste at your site. Be aware that a hazardous waste management permit is required for this type of activity.

4 - Recycler of Hazardous Waste (at your site) - Do you recycle hazardous waste at your facility. Many types of recycling do not require a permit. (i.e. Solvent Recycling in an on site distillation unit would fall into this category).

This process is described more fully in 6 NYCRR Part 374-1. 6 -Underground Injection Control - If you generate, treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste and there is a hazardous waste underground injection well located at your site, mark Yes. The Federal regulations for owners or operators of underground injection wells are found in 40 CFR Part 148. State regulations are found in 6 NYCRR Part 750 through 757. 7 - Receives Hazardous Waste from Off-site - If you received hazardous waste from another site, whether this waste was received as a commercial transaction or waste received from a restricted group of off-site generators, mark Yes.
