Reminder: Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) Reporting Deadline is July 1
Does your facility need to report to the Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) Program? Have you run the calculations to determine if your facility does? Do you know what the requirements are and/or how to report if necessary? Now’s the time to obtain answers to all of these questions. Remember, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) TRI Program “tracks the management of more than 650 toxic chemicals that may pose a threat to human health and the environment.“ Specifically, “U.S. facilities in certain industry sectors must report annually how much of each chemical is released to the environment and/or managed through recycling, energy recovery and treatment.” This information is then submitted annually to EPA and compiled in the TRI.
Facilities that handle toxic chemicals, including ready mixed concrete plants, are required to calculate the quantities that were handled: if any quantity is over an allowable threshold that chemical and the amount need to be reported under the program.
The reporting deadline is Wednesday, July 1. Click here for more on the program, listed chemicals, potential for reporting and when/how to report from EPA’s TRI Program website. You may also contact Gary Mullings at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kevin Walgenbach at email@example.com.
