A hazardous waste generator is a business or other non-household entity that generates hazardous waste. To find out if your business needs a license, view the Basic Hazardous Waste Requirements for Businesses from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Steps to applying are as follows:

  • Obtain a Hazardous Waste Identification Number (HWID) from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).
  • Complete the Hazardous Waste License Application and the Hazardous Waste Disclosure Form.
  • Submit application, disclosure form and MPCA HWID number to the department.
  • After your application is processed, you will receive a fee statement. After payment, you will receive the license from this department which must be publically posted.
  • If you generate additional waste or change the type of waste generated after receiving the license, contact the department.
