Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Database Information
RCRAInfo: the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Information system tracks data collected on generators, transporters, treaters, storers, and disposers of hazardous waste. These handlers of hazardous material are required to provide information concerning their waste activity in accordance to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The data collected on handlers includes basic site identification, permit or closure status, and corrective action tracking. To view data collected on any specific sites or geographic areas, visit our direct link to Envirofacts:
Envirofacts Data Warehouse retrieves environmental information from EPA databases on Superfund sites, drinking water, toxic and air releases, hazardous waste and Biennial Reporting System data, water discharge permits, and grants information. Use online queries to retrieve data or generate maps of environmental information by choosing from several mapping applications available through EPA's Maps On Demand.
- Envirofacts Reports: To create RCRAInfo reports from a Query form, select Hazardous Waste Data from the list of possible EPA programs. To find information on a certain facility, type in the site's name and choose "Beginning With" or "Containing". When you know the site's EPA ID number choose "Exact Match". You may narrow down a search by entering the zip code, city, county, state, and/or EPA Region for a site. To find information on a certain zip code, type in the zip code, state, and the EPA Region number. Choose the type of data you would like to see. To see all the Treatment, Storage, and Disposal facilities in your area and their RCRA Status, under Handler Type choose "Group B" and select the Permitting/Closure/ Post- Closure Progress Report.
- BRS: the Biennial Reporting System is a national system that collects data on the generation, management, and minimization of hazardous waste. BRS includes detailed data on the generation of hazardous waste from large quantity generators and data on waste management practices from treatment, storage and disposal facilities.
