Small Quantity Generator Re-Notification
Beginning September 1, 2021, and every four years thereafter, Small Quantity Generators (SQGs) of hazardous waste are required to notify the state of their hazardous waste activity. This notification will largely mean a re-notification if your company has already notified as an SQG. SQGs should use EPA Form 8700-12. The same form should be used to let us know if your generator status has changed to either a VSQG or LQG.

Notification may also be submitted electronically using the myRCRAid system at:

Questions regarding this requirement and about completing the form may be directed to Hazardous Waste Section by email or by phone at 605-773-3153.

2023 Hazardous Waste Rule
Found under the Administrative Rules of South Dakota (ARSD) Chapter 74:28, the state's updated hazardous waste rules became effective August 28, 2023. For a copy of the state’s rules, click here. Questions regarding the rules may be directed by email to Carrie Jacobson or to hazardous waste program staff by calling 605-773-3153.

e-Manifest National Tracking System
EPA has established a national system for tracking hazardous waste shipments electronically. This system, known as "e-Manifest", modernized the nation's cradle-to-grave hazardous waste tracking process. EPA launched the e-Manifest system nation-wide on June 30, 2018. Until the SDDANR incorporates the e-Manifest rule into the state's hazardous waste rules, EPA will continue to implement the system; however, South Dakota is responsible for providing access to the system for South Dakota hazardous waste generators.

For more information/fact sheets, please see EPA's e-Manifest fact sheet website.

Specifically, the Hazardous Waste Generators Fact Sheet can be found online.

Contact Carrie Jacobson or Tony Wagner at (605) 773-3153 to access the e-Manifest system or if you have any additional questions.
