Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Georgia adopts by reference the federal biennial report rules for large quantity hazardous waste generators (LQGs) and hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDF) owners and operators. Georgia uses the federal Hazardous Waste Report Forms 8700-13A and 8700-13B. LQGs and TSDF owners and operators in Georgia must submit the biennial report to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) by March 1 of every even-numbered year. The DNR will mail out forms packages early in the even-numbered year for the reporting year (the previous odd-numbered year).

In addition, Georgia requires LQGs and TSDFs that pay hazardous waste management fees to keep a hazardous waste management fee record and to submit the record to the DNR by March 31 of each year.

Administration and enforcement. DNR's Land Protection Branch administers and enforces the biennial report requirements in Georgia.
