INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING THE 8700-12FL
FLORIDA NOTIFICATION OF REGULATED
WASTE ACTIVITY (Form 62-730.900(1)(b))
DEP Waste Management Division–HWRS, MS4560
2600 Blair Stone Rd. Tallahassee, FL 32399-2400
(850) 245-8707
What is the purpose of this form?
This form is used to notify the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) of regulated waste
activities taking place at sites located in Florida. It is designed to help generators, transporters and processors of
hazardous waste, universal waste and used oil meet both the federal and state notification requirements. It is
also used to update information previously supplied to FDEP, and to notify FDEP when the facility closes, goes
out of business, and other changes.
Who must fill out this form?
The Florida hazardous waste rules require that certain information be submitted by any site that generates
hazardous waste, transports hazardous waste or operates a treatment/storage/disposal facility (TSDF) for
hazardous waste. Included are facilities that manage, in any month, over 100 kilograms (kg) [220 pounds (lbs.)]
of hazardous waste regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), or 1 kg of acute
RCRA hazardous waste; 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 notify; generators of used oil destined for recycling do
not need to notify. This form should also be used to notify FDEP of changes in previously submitted
information, including status of hazardous waste generators.
An EPA identification number must be obtained before beginning hazardous waste activities, except for,
Very Small Quantity Generators (VSQGs) who are exempted from the regulations under Title 40 Code of
Federal Regulations (262.14). VSQGs generate no more than 100 kg (220 lbs.) of hazardous waste in any
month.
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.
See the attached FDEP Regulatory District Map for contact information (https://floridadep.gov/districts).

Type of Regulated Waste Activity:
Item 9. RCRA Hazardous Waste Activities at this Facility
Mark an “X” in all that apply.
(1) Generator of Hazardous Waste
a. Large Quantity Generator (LQG)
Mark an “X” in this box if your site meets any of the following criteria, at least once a year.
o Generates in any one calendar month 1,000 kg (2,200 lbs) or more of hazardous waste,
o Generates in any one calendar month or accumulates at any one time, more than 1 kg (2.2 lbs)
of acute hazardous waste, or
o Generates in any one calendar month, or accumulate at any one time, more than 100 kg (220
lbs) of spill cleanup material contaminated with RCRA acute hazardous waste.
b. Small Quantity Generator (SQG)
Mark an “X” in this box if your site generates in any calendar month more than 100 kg/month but less
than 1,000 kg/month (220 lbs to 2,200 lbs) of non-acute hazardous waste, and/or 1 kg (2.2 lbs) or less of
acute hazardous waste and/or more than 100 kg (220 lbs) of any acute hazardous spill cleanup material.
c. Very Small Quantity Generator (VSQG)
Mark an “X” in this box if your site generates in any one calendar month 100 kg/month or less (220 lbs)
of non-acute hazardous waste and/or less than 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of acute hazardous waste, and has not
accumulated at any one time more than 1,000 kg of hazardous waste or 1 kg of acute hazardous waste.
d. Short-Term Generator
Mark an “X” in this box if your site is a one-time generator and is not considered on-going.
e. Mixed Waste Generator
Mark an “X” in the box if you are a generator of mixed waste (waste that is both hazardous and
radioactive). RCRA defines “mixed waste” as waste that contains both hazardous waste and source,
special nuclear, or by-product material subject to the Atomic Energy Act (AEA).
f. United States Importer of Hazardous Waste
Mark an “X” in the box if you import hazardous waste from another country into the United States.
Refer to 40 CFR §262.60 for additional information.
g. LQG Consolidation of VSQG Hazardous Waste
Mark an “X” in the box if you are an LQG notifying of VSQG Hazardous Waste Under Control of the
Same Person pursuant to 40 CFR 262.17 (f). (Addendum A Required).
h. Episodic Generator
Mark an “X” in this box if your site has no more than 1 episodic higher quantity waste generation event
per year and indicate if this episodic event is an SQG or an LQG quantity. An episodic higher quantity
waste generation event is the generation in any one month of the minimum quantity to place the facility
into a higher status (100 kg for SQG, 1,000kg or 1 kg of acute waste for LQG). For examples: If your
facility generally generates 20 kg/month except for an annual cleanout of 1,200 kg, you would be a
VSQG and an Episodic LQG. If the facility generated the 1200 kg twice (or more) a year you would be
an LQG and not Episodic. If the 20 kg facility generated 120 kg every 2 or 3 years you would be a
VSQG and an Episodic SQG. If your facility generally generates 120 kg/month except for a clean-out
every 2 or 3 years of the 1,200 kg, you would be an SQG and an Episodic LQG. (Addendum B

system to obtain, complete, and transmit an electronic manifest under a contractual relationship with a
hazardous waste generator.
Item 9. (2) Treater, Storer, or Disposer of Hazardous Waste
Do not complete this section, if the following are true: (1) your facility hires another company to transport
hazardous wastes to a TSDF facility, and (2) storage or treatment of hazardous waste at your facility
complies with the generator requirements in 40 CFR §262.17, and (3) your facility does not have any post-
closure or corrective action obligations.
If you have a permit to treat, store, or dispose of regulated hazardous waste at your facility, or if your facility is
not permitted to treat, store or dispose of regulated hazardous but your facility has on-going post-closure or
corrective obligations via a permit or consent order (Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA), etc.),
mark an “X” in the correct box or boxes. (Burning hazardous wastes in boilers and industrial furnaces and
storing hazardous wastes before recycling fall into this category including activities that require a permit.
Disposal may include the presence of contaminated media at or under your facility.) A hazardous waste permit
is required for the operating TSD activities and may be required for post-closure or corrective action. Call our
hazardous waste permitting staff at (850) 245-8721 for more details.
Item 9. (3) Recycler of Hazardous Waste
If you recycle regulated hazardous waste or recyclable materials, mark an “X” in this box and specify whether
you are a commercial or non-commercial recycler. In some cases, a permit is required for this activity. You

precious metals, as described in 40 CFR §266.100(g), or if you process hazardous wastes in a lead
recovery furnace to recover lead, as described in 40 CFR §266.100(h), mark an “X” in this box to
indicate that you qualify for the Smelting, Melting, and Refining Furnace Exemption.
Item 9. (5) Person Authorized to Manage Very Small Quantity Waste generated at other facilities
Mark an “X” in this box if you consolidate hazardous waste from sites that generate no more than 100 kg (220
lb.) of hazardous waste per month. If you choose this box, attach the appropriate documents indicating
authorization.
Item 9. (6) Receives Hazardous Waste from Offsite
