2017 Forms and Instructions are now available.

NOTE: The Annual Facility Report (AFR) must be postmarked no later than March 1st of every year covering activities conducted the previous year. Please, DO NOT fax completed reports.

Please note: Hazardous Waste Generators are NOT required to file the Annual Facility Report. If you are not a Treatment, Storage, and/or Disposal Facility, please click here to go to the Biennial Hazardous Waste Report page.

A Treatment, Storage, or Disposal Facility (TSDF) is required to file the Annual Facility Report (AFR) for activities conducted in the prior year, pursuant to the California Code of Regulations, Title 22, Division 4.5:

The Department of Toxic Substances Control holds facilities that handle hazardous wastes to high standards of operation. TSDFs are required to report all RCRA and State hazardous waste activities to maintain regulatory compliance in accordance with the AFR. Failure to comply with state regulations regarding Annual Facility Reports may result in fines and penalties.

DTSC collects and maintains information via the Annual Facility Report to analyze hazardous waste management activities in the state. DTSC uses this data to identify trends in hazardous waste management and to monitor hazardous waste facilities in California.
