Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) Reporting for Large Quantity Hazardous Waste Generators DUE DATE: September 1

Senate Bill 14 (SB 14) is the Hazardous Waste Source Reduction and Management Review Act of 1989 and requires hazardous waste generators to consider source reduction as the preferred method of managing hazardous waste. Source reduction is preferable over recycling and treatment options because source reduction avoids waste generation costs and management liabilities, and provides the best protection for public health and the environment.

A facility is subject to SB 14 requirements if they are a large quantity generator, i.e. they generate over 12,000 kilograms of hazardous waste or extremely hazardous waste during a calendar year. Exempted waste streams include, but are not limited to, motor vehicle fluids and filters, lead acid batteries, household hazardous wastes, waste pesticides, oil generated from decommissioned refrigeration units, universal wastes, asbestos, polychlorinated biphenyls, demolition waste, and medical wastes.

SB 14 documents include the Hazardous Waste Source Reduction Evaluation Review and Plan (Plan), the Hazardous Waste Management Performance Report (Performance Report), and the Summary Progress Report (SPR). A generator that meets the definition of a “small business” may submit a Compliance Checklist and a Biennial Generator Report in lieu of the Plan and Performance Report, respectively; however, all generators must prepare an SPR. The SB 14 documents are required to be updated every four years by September 1, following the reporting year.

If the SB 14 documents were prepared for the 2018 reporting year, the documents will need to be updated by September 1, 2023, for the 2022 reporting year.
