Notification of Regulated Waste Activity

U.S. EPA identification (ID) numbers are tracking numbers assigned by Ohio EPA’s Division of Environmental Response and Revitalization (DERR) for certain hazardous waste, used oil and universal waste activities. Ohio EPA utilizes U.S. EPA’s RCRAInfo database to assign these numbers. U.S. EPA identification numbers are part of a nationwide effort to track hazardous waste from “cradle to grave” and to ensure protection of human health and the environment. You may need a U.S. EPA ID number if you are a generator of hazardous waste, or if you are a handler of universal waste or used oil. You will also be required to obtain a U.S. EPA ID number if you transport or treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste.

There is no fee associated with obtaining an ID number. The guidelines for obtaining a number can be found in the Notification of Regulated Waste Activity instruction booklet. The notification form’s official name is RCRA Subtitle C Site Identification (EPA Form 9029). It is commonly referred to as the Site ID Form. See the table below about options for completing and submitting this form.

For paper-based submissions, the Certification Section on page 3 needs to be signed before the form is mailed. Ohio EPA will not process forms without an original signature and a certification date.

Completed Site ID forms should be mailed to Ohio EPA - DERR at P.O. Box 1049, Columbus, OH, 43216-1049.
