The EPA and primacy states monitor and track generator activity by an identification number to each generator. Without this number, the generator is barred from treating, storing, disposing of, transporting, or offering for transportation any hazardous waste. Furthermore, the generator is forbidden from offering the hazardous waste to any transporter, or treatment, storage, or disposal (TSD) facility that does not also have an EPA ID number. Generators obtain ID numbers by notifying the EPA of hazardous waste activity, using the standard EPA notification form.
