Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identification numbers are used to identify and track hazardous waste as it moves its way from generator to transporter to final disposal facility (cradle-to-grave).
All large quantity generators; small quantity generators; hazardous waste transporters; and hazardous waste storage, treatment, or disposal facilities are required to obtain an EPA ID number. Only 1 number is assigned to a generator or facility address.
EPA ID numbers are issued in Florida through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Contact the FDEP district office for more information.
