Hazardous waste reporting now required through RPRA’s Hazardous Waste Program Registry instead of HWIN

As of January 1, 2023 generators, carriers, and receivers of liquid industrial and hazardous waste are required to report their hazardous waste management activities and pay fees through RPRA’s digital Hazardous Waste Program (HWP) Registry or HazTrack mobile app. The new registry replaces the use of paper manifests and the HWIN system that was operated by the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks.

While the digital registry is changing how and where information required under the Hazardous Waste Program is reported, the substance of what needs to be reported is not changing. Reporting requirements are outlined in Regulation 347: General – Waste Management and in the ministry’s Registration Guidance Manual for Generators of Liquid Industrial and Hazardous Waste.

Set up your registry account to ship or receive waste

As of January 1, liquid industrial and hazardous waste cannot be shipped, stored, processed or disposed unless generators have set up their account, facilities and waste streams in the new HWP Registry.

If you haven’t yet done so, create an account in the HWP Registry today so you can report and manifest your waste shipments in the new system. The RPRA HazTrack mobile app is also available for download through the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Check out our training materials on account creation and downloading the mobile app.
