Notification of Hazardous Waste or Liquid Industrial Waste activity for this site.

The Michigan Site Identification Form (Revised 12/2007) must be submitted for certain facilities regulated under Part 111, Hazardous Waste Management or Part 121, Liquid Industrial Waste of Michigan's Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451 (Act 451), as amended, and Subtitle C of the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, RCRA), and the rules there under, to obtain a Site Identification Number (initial notification).

You must also submit the completed form as a component of a Part A, as a component of the Hazardous Waste Report (biennial report), or you may choose to submit the form as a subsequent notification or as part of the Annual User Fee Charge required for certain types of hazardous waste generators.

You may search our database at www.deq.state.mi.us/wdspi/ to determine if the site location already exists (even if under a different facility name). If the physical location does exist in the data system you may request a pre-populated Site Identification Verification Form (EQP5150-v) by contacting the closest DEQ district office and asking for staff in the hazardous or liquid industrial waste program in the Office of Waste Management and Radiological Protection (OWMRP) or you can call OWMRP in Lansing (517-335-2690) and ask for staff in the Waste Tracking and Data Management Unit.  If you find that the site you are notifying about does not exist in the data system, you will need to download the blank form.

The $50 User Charge Fee

Requests for the issuance of a Site Identification Number for hazardous waste or liquid industrial waste activities are subject to a user charge of $50.00.   The DEQ will not issue a site identification number until the $50.00 user charge has been paid and the payment has cleared.  If you are required to pay the $50 user fee charge, you may pay by credit card (Master Card, VISA, or Discover Card) by going to the secure site www.thepayplace.com/mi/deq/siteid 

If you choose to pay by credit card, you must submit your receipt with the Site Identification Form.  Either mail to:

DEQ, Office of Waste Management and Radiological Protection
P.O. Box 30241
Lansing, MI 48909    
Fax to: 517-335-7145 or 517-373-4051.  You can obtain a site identification number in a shorter time period by using this method. Call 517-284-6838 if you have questions.

Or the payment may be made by check if the application is submitted with the $50.00 check made payable to "State of Michigan" and mailed to:

DEQ Office of Financial Management
Revenue Control Unit
PO  Box 30657
Lansing,  MI 48909     

To help ensure proper credit, please indicate on the check "Site ID User Charge".

The following are some examples of when the Office of Waste Management and Radiological Protection considers the facility to be "new" and the $50 user charge fee must be submitted with the Site Identification Form (EQP5150):

  • A Site Identification Number has never been assigned to this physical location.  The current owner/business is required to obtain a number.
  • A Site Identification Number has been previously assigned to this physical location for a previous owner/business and a new legal entity becomes the owner, said entity is required to obtain a Site Identification Number.  A new legal entity may occur:
    • If the site is transferred through, for example, a sale,
    • If the business becomes incorporated (Inc.), a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC), or a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) and the business entity changes (this could be indicated by a name change),
    • If the business is not an Inc., LLC, or LLP but the principals change.

Emergency Site Identification Numbers:

An Emergency Site Identification Number is assigned to any situation where there is an unexpected incident and the cleanup waste can not be accumulated on site because that would further threaten human health and the environment.  Reasons why the waste can not be accumulated on site vary greatly but common reasons are there isn't any room to accumulate the waste (e.g., on the side of the road with minimal shoulder), the waste is too dangerous to be left (e.g., flammable and it is a hot and humid summer day), or there are other hazards in the area that means the waste could not be protected.  When issued, the emergency Site Identification Number is valid until the immediate threat has been addressed and is provisional upon payment of the requisite $50 user charge.  The numbers are site specific and cannot be transferred between locations.  Any long term clean up requires the generator to file a Site Identification Form (EQP5150-v). 

To obtain an Emergency Site Identification Number during normal business hours contact the DEQ and ask for the Waste Tracking and Data Management Unit at 517-284-6596.  During evenings, weekends, and holidays contact the Pollution Emergency Alerting System (PEAS) at 800-292-4706.  You will receive a copy of EQP5150-v generated from the information received over the telephone regarding your emergency cleanup site.  You are required to fill in all of the additional information that is missing, such as the Federal Identification Number.  After you have completed the form, write a check payable to the "State of Michigan" in the amount of $50.00 to pay for the issuance of the ID number and mail the check and completed form to:
DEQ Office of Financial Management
Revenue Control Unit
PO Box 30657
Lansing, MI 48909

To help ensure proper credit, please indicate on the check "Site ID User Charge".
