RESOURCE CONSERVATION AND RECOVERY ACT INFORMATION SYSTEM (RCRAInfo)
Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), generators, transporters, treaters, storers, and disposers of hazardous waste as defined by the federally recognized hazardous waste codes, are required to provide information concerning their activities to state environmental agencies, who in turn provide the information to Regional and National U.S. EPA offices.

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Information System (RCRAInfo) is a national program management and inventory system of RCRA hazardous waste handlers and is used by the EPA to support its implementation of RCRA, as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA). The system is primarily used to track a handler's permit or closure status, compliance with Federal and State regulations, cleanup activities, waste handler inventory, and environmental program progress assessment. Handlers can be characterized as fitting one or more of the following categories: treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs), large quantity generators, small quantity generators, and transporters. An overview of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Information (RCRAInfo) is available at: http://www.epa.gov/enviro/html/rcris/ . RCRAInfo information is available from ENVIROFACTS under Waste at EPA Headquarters Web Page: http://www.epa.gov/enviro/

BIENNIAL REPORTING SYSTEM (BRS)

The Biennial Reporting System database contains detailed information on hazardous waste generation, management, and disposal. Each facility required to report this information gathers statistics on its own waste activity through the course of every odd-numbered year. Once compiled into a National Oversight Database, the data can be used to analyze trends in the quantities of hazardous waste generation, management, and disposal, as well as assessing the impact of regulations and planning for waste management and disposal capacity. An overview of The Biennial Reporting System is available at: http://www.epa.gov/enviro/html/rcris/rcris_overview.html
