U.S. EPA identification (ID) numbers are tracking numbers assigned by Ohio EPA’s Division of Materials and Waste Management (DMWM) for certain hazardous waste, used oil and universal waste activities. Ohio EPA utilizes U.S. EPA’s RCRAInfo database to assign these numbers. U.S. EPA identification numbers are part of a nationwide effort to track hazardous waste from “cradle to grave” and to ensure protection of human health and the environment. You may need a U.S EPA ID number if you are a generator of hazardous waste, or if you are a handler of universal waste or used oil. You will also be required to obtain a U.S. EPA ID number if you transport or treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste.
There is no fee associated with obtaining an ID number. The guidelines for obtaining a number can be found in the Notification of Regulated Waste Activity instruction booklet.
The notification form's official name is RCRA Subtitle C Site Identification (EPA Form 9029) and it is commonly referred to as the "Site ID form". You can either print the form and fill it out manually, or you can fill in the pdf on your computer using Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 or higher.
The Certification Section on page 3 needs to be signed before you mail the form. Ohio EPA will not process forms without an original signature and a certification date.
Completed Site ID forms should be mailed to the address listed in the top left corner of page 1 of the form.
