Residual Waste Biennial Report
In January 2023, DEP will be mailing out information regarding the 2022 Residual Waste Biennial Report to sites that submitted a 2020 Residual Waste Biennial Report indicating they generated more than 13 tons of residual waste in 2020.
A Pennsylvania residual waste generator that generated more than 13 tons of residual waste in 2022 is required to submit this report. The 2022 Residual Waste Biennial Report is due by March 1, 2023.
It is highly encouraged for residual waste generators to submit the 2022 biennial report electronically. Electronic submissions are done via Greenport, an official PA government website. Since Greenport is powered by Keystone Login, you need to have a PA Keystone Login account to use Greenport. Greenport allows generators to start, save and submit the 2022 biennial report electronically. Generators submitting their reports electronically are not required to submit a paper report. In general, Greenport users will fall into one of three categories:
- Existing Greenport Users that have already registered for a new PA Keystone Login account after 3/20/21 and already imported their old Greenport account
You are ready to use Greenport. If you have not previously submitted an RFC online authorization form or you need biennial reporting facilities added to your account, please submit a new RFC Online Authorization form (see link below).
- Existing Greenport users prior to 3/20/21 that have not yet registered for a PA Keystone Login account
You need to register for Keystone Login by going through the registration process. Please visit the Greenport website link below, click Register and complete the registration process. After registration, follow the import instructions on pages 11-15 of the Greenport user guide to import your old Greenport account (link below).
If you forgot your old Greenport login information and you can’t recover it, or if you failed to import your old Greenport account for any reason, please submit a new RFC online authorization form
- Brand new users to Greenport
Please visit the Greenport link below and click Register to create a new Greenport/Keystone account. For detailed instructions, please see pages 4-10 of the Greenport user guide linked below.
After creating your new Greenport/Keystone account, please complete and submit an RFC online authorization form (see link below) to add your biennial reporting facilities to your Greenport account.
