Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) requires hazardous waste large quantity generators (LQGs) and owners and operators of treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) to submit a biennial report on Ohio EPA forms to the Ohio EPA by March 1 of each even-numbered year. Ohio EPA then forwards the data it receives from submitted biennial reports to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as required. The state forms mirror the federal forms, with the addition of the state PS Form and the OI Form, which must be submitted by certain facilities. In addition, recycling facilities that store recyclable materials but enter them into the recycling process within 72 hours of their arrival at the facility must file a biennial report.

Note that Ohio has not required LQGs and TSDFs to file an annual report for several years.

Administration and enforcement. The Ohio EPA's Division of Environmental Response and Revitalization administers and enforces the state's biennial report requirements.
