The hazardous waste regulations of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) require Large Quantity Generators (LQGs) and Small Quantity Generators (SQGs) of hazardous waste to maintain a copy of certain documents as a record of their compliance. In a series of article I identified and explained RCRA’s recordkeeping requirements. The purpose of this article is to serve as a bulletin board for all of those articles. Much more information on each topic can be found by following the links below.

What records must be kept by a Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator of hazardous waste (CESQG)?
ANSWER: A CESQGis not required by RCRA regulations to maintain any records of its compliance. However, as a practical matter a CESQG may find it to their benefit to maintain at least the following records for at least three (3) years in order to demonstrate that they are indeed a CESQG:
- Copies of the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (if used) signed by the Designated Facility.
- Documentation of the Hazardous Waste Determination for all solid waste.
The maintenance of the required records takes time and resources. Training of your Facility Personnel takes time and resources. Compliance with the RCRA regulations of the USEPA and your state takes time and resources. Let me help.
