If you report either of these management method codes, you must enter a recycling percentage:
- H010: Metals recovery, including retorting, smelting, chemical, etc.
- H020: Solvents recovery (distillation, extraction, etc.)
Who qualifies for recycling credits?
Generators qualify for recycling credits if they:
- Generate 2,640 pounds or more of recurrent waste.
- Send all or part of this waste off site to a TSDR facility for recycling.
How do I know if recycling credits apply?
Only certain types of management method codes qualify. The qualifying management types are:
- H010 — Metals recovery, including retorting, smelting, chemical, etc.
- H020 — Solvents recovery
- H039 — Other recovery or reclamation for reuse including acid regeneration, organics recovery, etc.
- H141 — Stored, bulked, and transferred the waste with no treatment or recovery (H010-H129), fuel blending (H061), or disposal (H131-H135) at that receiving site
How do I obtain the recycling credit?
You must contact your TSDR facility to find out what percentage of your waste stream was recycled. If a percentage of your waste stream was recycled, then you must request written documentation confirming the recycling percentage for that waste stream.
The documentation must:
- Identify the waste stream recycled (by waste description and waste form).
- List the management method code indicating the type of management the waste received.
- List percentage recycled during the reporting year.
- Have a signature from an authorized representative of the TSDR facility with the date the documentation was provided to you.
Do I report recycling credits?
Yes. Recycling credits are entered in Section B3 of the Generation and Management (GM) Form of the Dangerous Waste Annual Report.
