Frequent Questions

Use of RCRA identification number

What RCRA identification number does a facility list if it sends a non-hazardous waste containing a Section 313 toxic chemical to a solid waste landfill?

If an off-site location such as a solid waste landfill does not have a RCRA identification number, the facility would enter “NA” in the space provided. If the facility does have such a RCRA identification number, it must list the number, if known, even though the waste being transferred may not be a regulated RCRA hazardous waste. The RCRA identification number is shown on the RCRA manifest that must accompany the hazardous waste to the off-site facility.

Additional guidance on when to report a RCRA identification number can be found in the Toxic Release Inventory Reporting Forms and Instructions.
