Florida hazardous waste rules require that certain information be submitted by facilities that generate
hazardous waste, transport hazardous waste, or operate a treatment/storage/disposal facility for hazardous
waste. Included in this notification requirement are facilities that manage over 100 kg of RCRA hazardous
waste or 1 kg of Acute RCRA hazardous waste in any month or 5,000 kg (11,000 lbs) or more of combined
universal waste on-site at any one time. Sites that manage, transport and/or process used oil must also
notify; generators of used oil destined for recycling do not need to notify.
An EPA identification number (EPAID) must be obtained before beginning hazardous waste generator activities,
except for Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators (CESQGS) who are exempt from this regulation under
the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40, Chapter 261.5. When you submit the notification form, 8700-12,
your facility will be assigned an EPAID. This form should also be used to notify FDEP of changes in status of
hazardous waste generators or handlers.
Temporary/Emergency identification numbers are handled by the FDEP District offices. If you need a
Temporary/Emergency identification number for a one-time generation of hazardous waste or for an emergency
clean-up, contact the district office handling the county in which your hazardous waste generation will occur.
