EPA Site ID Numbers

All hazardous waste handlers, including anyone who generates hazardous wastes, transports hazardous waste, or operates a treatment/storage/disposal facility for hazardous waste, are required by the Vermont Hazardous Waste Management Regulations (VHWMR) to notify the Department of Environmental Conservation and receive an EPA ID Number for their site. Completion of the Hazardous Waste Handler Site ID Form fulfills this requirement. Other Activities for which completion of this form is required include the management of used oil, and management of 5000 kg (11,000 lbs.) or more of combined universal waste on-site at any one time, and recycling of hazardous waste. Click on the links below to download PDF versions of the form and instructions and other documents that may assist you in completing the form. Once you return the form to the Waste Management Division, your new EPA ID number will be mailed to you.

If you are unsure if your facility has a current EPA identification number, refer to the DEC's Envionmental Research Tool (ERT).  This tool provides the public to access to up-to-date environmental information on property specific information concerning contaminated groundwater sites, hazardous materials spills, and regulated underground storage tanks facilities located in Vermont.
