Licensed Hazardous Waste Facilities

MassDEP licenses hazardous waste facilities for terms of five years. After receiving its license, a facility needs to apply to MassDEP for a:

  • License modification before accepting different wastes, installing new processing equipment or storage tanks, or making other changes to its business (see Key Actions below to apply), and a
  • License renewal before its current five-year term expires. There are opportunities for public involvement at every step of this process.

Currently, the following Massachusetts facilities are licensed to treat and store hazardous waste. See Additional Resources below for a link to detailed licensing information about each of these facilities.

Licensed Facility & LQG Biennial Reporting

Each Large Quantity Generator (LQG) and Licensed Hazardous Waste Facility in Massachusetts is required to submit an 8700-13 (a)/(b) Hazardous Waste Report (also known as a Biennial Report) to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) every two years.

Starting in 2018, Biennial Reports will need to be filed electronically via the RCRAInfo Industry Application. The following information will need to be submitted:

  • RCRA Subtitle C Site Identification Form,
  • Waste Generation and Management (GM) Form,
  • Waste Received From Off-Site (WR) Form, and
  • Off-Site Identification (OI) Form.

See Additional Resources below to learn more about the new Biennial Reporting process.

Hazardous Waste Manifest Requirements

PLEASE NOTE: EPA has moved the National Manifest Form to a new online system. Learn more about e-Manifest. See the EPA Fact Sheets for Treatment, Storage & Disposal Facilities and Receiving Facilities.

Under state and federal law, a facility that generates hazardous waste bears "cradle-to-grave" responsibility for the waste's creation, handling, transport, treatment and ultimate fate.

All Massachusetts waste generators and treatment facilities that initiate shipments of hazardous waste and/or waste oil must use manifests. Forms need to be completed with appropriate waste codes, including those for wastes regulated by Massachusetts only (e.g. MA01 for waste oil).

You may use the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) e-Manifest system to complete, submit, and track manifests electronically. Here is all you need to do:

  1. Register as a RCRAInfo user (follow the link in Key Actions below).
  2. Wait for MassDEP to approve your electronic signature. 
  3. Login at RCRAInfo and access e-Manifest.
  4. Complete and submit manifest form(s) electronically.
  5. Track your hazardous waste shipment(s) online via RCRAInfo.

It takes only minutes to create a RCRAInfo account and between one (1) and seven (7) business days to begin using e-Manifest. See the FAQ in Additional Resources below to learn more.

Important Notes:

  • Although you may still use paper manifests, EPA and MassDEP strongly encourage you to use the e-Manifest system because it is an easier and less costly way to comply with the regulations.
  • You may still use existing MV plus phone number hazardous waste IDs (e.g. MV6170001111) on paper manifests, but will be unable to register as an e-Manifest user or track your shipments online until they are available on the public viewer after 90 days. MassDEP no longer accepts applications for new MV plus phone number IDs.
