What's New with the Hazardous Waste Annual Report Instructions and Forms
Consolidated Waste Management Codes
Some management method codes have been consolidated in order to ease reporting. For example, previous codes H071 (chemical reduction), H073 (cyanide destruction), H075 (chemical oxidation), H076 (wet air oxidation) and H077 (other chemical precipitation) have all been consolidated under the new management method code H070 (chemical treatment). The management method codes for this 2013 reporting year have been mapped to the management method codes used for previous years in order to assist filers with the transition.
Revised Language for Some Source Code Descriptions
Editorial changes were made to the description of some source codes in order to improve clarity for filers. For example, G25 was changed from "hazardous waste management" to "treatment, disposal, or recycling of hazardous waste" in order to better communicate the meaning of this code.
Revised North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code Descriptions
In completing the 2013 Hazardous Waste Report, sites should use the new 2012 NAICS codes established by the U.S. Census Bureau. Significant changes were made to the NAICS codes in 2012. All sites should confirm their NAICS codes in the new NAICS code table, which can be found a the US Census Bureau web site. (See link at the "Links leaving DEC's Website" on the right.)
