If your facility generates or stores hazardous waste, you may be required to submit a TCEQ annual waste summary. Applicability to submitting a TCEQ annual waste summary is dependent on the quantity of acutely hazardous waste, contaminated soil, waste or other debris resulting from the cleanup of acutely hazardous waste, hazardous waste and/or industrial Class 1 nonhazardous waste generated or stored at any one time. Simply determining whether you’re applicable to submit a TCEQ AWS can be challenging. ESE Partners can help.
No Easy Task
The first step to properly submitting a TCEQ annual waste summary is to properly identify and classify your wastes. A TCEQ AWS may seem like a lot of effort, but it’s actually very important.

We’ll also show you all state and federal management standards that apply to your specific facility. We’ll give you all of the guidance you need, and we’ll always be here to answer any of your questions, or address any of your concerns.
Types of Waste Required for AWS Inclusion
There are several different kinds of hazardous waste materials that need to be included in an AWS report. These include the following:
- Non-hazardous industrial solid waste (Class 1), if you do not recycle that waste.
- Any one-time shipments of non-recycled Class 1 industrial solid waste.
- Any one-time shipments of hazardous waste materials.
However, there are also many kinds of wastes that you don’t need to include in your AWS, such as:
- Non-hazardous, recycled oil.
- Non-hazardous, recycled oil filters that are drained and free of liquids.
- All non-hazardous waste materials generated by a facility that is non-industrial.
