PART 722 STANDARDS APPLICABLE TO GENERATORS OF HAZARDOUS WASTE
SECTION 722.127 WASTE MINIMIZATION CERTIFICATION
Section 722.127 Waste Minimization Certification
A generator that initiates a shipment of hazardous waste must certify to one of the following statements in Item 15 of the uniform hazardous waste manifest:
a) "I am a large quantity generator. I have a program in place to reduce the volume and toxicity of waste generated to the degree I have determined to be economically practicable and I have selected the practicable method of treatment, storage, or disposal currently available to me which minimizes the present and future threat to human health and the environment"; or
b) "I am a small quantity generator. I have made a good faith effort to minimize my waste generation and select the best waste management method that is available to me and that I can afford."
BOARD NOTE: 35 Ill. Adm. Code 720.110 defines a "small quantity generator" as a generator that generates less than 1,000 kilograms of hazardous waste in any calendar month. There is no corresponding definition of "large quantity generator" in the federal regulations, but the Board interprets the term to mean a hazardous waste generator that is not a small quantity generator.
