Title 128 - Nebraska Hazardous Waste Regulations require anyone subject to the requirements for large quantity generators (generates more than 1,000 kilograms (2,200 pounds) of hazardous waste per month) at any time during a calendar year and/or facilities that treat, store or dispose (TSD) of hazardous waste to prepare and submit by March 1 of each even-numbered year a Hazardous Waste Report for the reporting cycle. All one-time large quantity generators (also known as episodic large quantity generators) are required to submit a Biennial Report and report the total amount of hazardous waste generated for the entire calendar year and not just for the month(s) they were a large quantity generator.

In the past, the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy (NDEE) required facilities to complete and submit EPA Form 8700-13 A/B to report their hazardous waste activities, or by using third-party software. However, for the 2019 reporting cycle, the NDEE is requiring use of the RCRAInfo Industry Application. The EPA’s RCRAInfo web interface will greatly simplify and streamline the process from years past. Visit https://rcrainfo.epa.gov/rcrainfoprod/ * to create a log-in and complete your report.

Your report must be submitted through the RCRAInfo web application by March 1, 2020. If you are unable to submit the report by March 1, 2020, you may request an extension of no more than 30 days. Your request for an extension must be made in writing and sent to the NDEE at the address listed above; must state the reason for which the extension is requested; must state the amount of additional time required to file the report (not to exceed 30 days); and must be received by the NDEE no later than April 1, 2020.
