What's New with the Hazardous Waste Annual Report Instructions and Forms
Revised Waste Minimization Codes
The waste minimization codes have been revised in order to assist filers with reporting their waste minimization activities. The new waste minimization codes identify when waste minimization activities occurred (whether initiated prior to the reporting year or during the reporting year) and also provide examples of types of waste minimization activities.
Hurricane Sandy Waste
Hazardous waste generated from Hurricane Sandy cleanup activities may be eligible for an exemption from Regulatory Fees and Special Assessment Taxes. The authority and eligibility for the exemption is based on DEC's Hazardous Waste Generator Executive Order, dated November 6, 2012 (PDF) (184 KB).
How to address this is on Page 22 of the Instructions and Forms Booklet - 2012 Hazardous Waste Report (PDF) (537 KB, 55 pages).
