The Details of Toxics Use Reduction (TUR) Online Reporting

  • Listed chemicals that it manufactures, processes, or otherwise uses above applicable thresholds.

You will be presented with a worksheet during the online reporting process. The information you enter will be used to calculate your TUR fee. MassDEP will mail you a TUR fee invoice in late summer.
