Any Pennsylvania small businesses that generated more than 13 tons of residual waste in calendar year 2022 is required to submit the residual waste biennial report by March 1, 2023.

What is “residual waste”?

In Pennsylvania, residual waste is considered any type of waste that is not otherwise considered hazardous or municipal waste.  Examples of residual waste include contaminated soil, rubber, glass, industrial equipment, filters, excess grindings and shavings, etc.  To help address further questions please see EMAP’s Residual Waste Brochure.

Small businesses who need to file the residual waste biennial report can access paper copies of the Generator’s Residual Waste Biennial Report for 2022 along with the Instructions Packet by visiting Pennsylvania DEP’s site for the Residual Waste Biennial Report.
