Who is required to complete the TCEQ Annual Waste Summary?
Submitting the AWS is required for all registered generators of industrial and hazardous waste in Texas. If you were registered with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) in that year you must submit the waste report.
Facilities that generate and manage less than 220 pounds of hazardous or Class 1 industrial or less than 2.2 lbs of acutely hazardous waste per month must submit an AWS, but do not need to provide details regarding their waste activities. Class 1 wastes that are recycled and universal wastes do not need to be reported on an AWS. Recycled hazardous waste counts toward your generator status and must be reported, but may be exempt from generation fees by indicating a fee exemption code on the summary.

Frequently Asked Questions
The TCEQ Annual Waste Summary (AWS) report aims to provide comprehensive information on the amount of hazardous waste and Class 1 non-hazardous industrial waste that a facility generated or managed during the reporting year. By gathering this data, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) can calculate a facility’s generation fee and ensure that waste generators comply with the state’s regulations and standards.
The TCEQ Annual Waste Summary is based on regulations set by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality under the 30 Texas Administrative Code, 335.9. All registered generators, including Large Quantity Generators (LQG), are mandated to submit this report annually, detailing their waste generation and management practices. For accuracy and compliance, the report is developed electronically using the STEERS system for LQGs.
The primary responsibility for developing and submitting the AWS lies with the registered generators of industrial and hazardous waste in Texas. If a facility is registered with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), it is obliged to submit this report. Additionally, RSB provides assistance, guidance, and expertise in helping facilities properly manage, classify, and submit their AWS, ensuring that it is in line with federal and state management standards.
The TCEQ uses the information provided in the AWS to calculate a facility’s generation fee, ensuring they are compliant with waste management regulations. This report also assists in regulatory oversight, helping determine if facilities are adhering to the stipulated limits and guidelines regarding waste generation and management. Additionally, this data aids in developing insights into waste generation trends and can guide future policymaking and environmental protection measures in Texas.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) periodically provides updates based on environmental needs and legislative changes. For precise dates and notices on these updates, it’s recommended to regularly check the TCEQ’s official website or subscribe to their mailing list.
The section dedicated to TCEQ hazardous waste can be found within the Texas TCEQ Annual Waste Summary report and on the official TCEQ website. It provides detailed guidelines on handling, storage, and disposal of hazardous waste in Texas.
TCEQ hazardous waste classification includes various materials that can be harmful to human health or the environment if not properly managed. It’s best to refer to the specific section on hazardous waste in the TCEQ guidelines for a detailed list.
