Last year, Cook County passed the Liquid Hazardous Waste Ordinance which requires facilities in suburban Cook County to report their annual liquid hazardous waste generation and submit a corresponding fee. The inaugural Liquid Hazardous Waste Annual report for the period January 1, 2016 and June 30, 2016 is due September 1, 2016.
Any facilities with less than 420 gallons of liquid hazardous waste in this time period still need to complete the form by the deadline but no fee will be assessed. All facilities with greater than 420 gallons of liquid hazardous waste must include a $0.02/gallon fee with their report.
All liquid hazardous waste generated from July 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016 will be reported on a separate form due March 1, 2017.
For all liquid hazardous waste generated each year after 2016, the reporting period is January – December, and the annual report and fee is due March 1st of the following year.
Failure to submit this form on time may result in fines up to $10,000 for each offense.
