TurboWaste is our electronic reporting system for submitting dangerous waste annual reports and updated notifications.

This year TurboWaste looks a little different. 

What's new?

This year TurboWaste got a face-lift! We rebuilt the application to make reporting easier for you. You might notice a new look and feel, and we think you will find it easier to navigate the reporting process. 

We are collecting more information this year

You may notice some new questions on the forms you normally fill out. We explain each of these questions in the annual reporting guide and in the help links within TurboWaste. 

Large Quantity Generators

If you are a Large Quantity Generator (LQG), you don’t need your electronic signature account for 2018 dangerous waste annual reports. Please use TurboWaste to submit your report.
In previous years LQGs had to submit their dangerous waste annual reports using their electronic signature account (also known as the HWTR signing portal or the cross media electronic reporting rule, CROMERR).
This year LQGs don’t need to go through that process. There will be a different process for 2019 annual reports—stay tuned for more information.

Who has to report?

Facilities that generate or manage dangerous waste may need to have an active EPA/State ID number. All sites with an active EPA/State ID number must:
  • Submit a dangerous waste annual report by March 1 each year.
  • Submit a revised notification to Ecology if the company name, mailing address, ownership, physical location, or type of dangerous waste activity changes.
