Solid Waste Facilities Reporting Program

The Mississippi Nonhazardous Solid Waste Management Regulations require the owner of a solid waste management facility to submit an annual report to the MDEQ each year on or before February 28th. The annual report should include information on the solid waste disposal activities conducted during the preceding calendar year. Solid waste management facilities (that must comply with the annual reporting requirements) include commercial and noncommercial landfills, commercial and noncommercial rubbish sites, composting facilities, and land application sites.

The basis for these reporting requirements is found in the Mississippi Code Annotated Section 17-17-219 (supp. 2007), which also requires the owner of a commercial solid waste disposal facility to file a statement with the Mississippi Department of Revenue, before July 15 each year, showing the total amount of waste managed at the facility during the preceding calendar year. At the same time the owner is required to pay to the Department of Revenue one dollar ($1.00) per ton of waste managed at the facility.


Announcement of a New E-Reporting System
For the first time, MDEQ is providing owners of solid waste management facilities the ability to submit their required annual reports online via the Re-TRAC Connect (Re-TRAC) platform. MDEQ has partnered with Emerge Knowledge Design, Inc. to develop this electronic reporting system to improve consistency in facility reporting data, provide an easier method for timely submittal of reports, and streamline the annual reporting process for both the agency and regulated community. Online reporting is now available for Calendar Year 2018.
While the original fillable PDF forms for solid waste management facilities will still be available upon request for use in Calendar Year 2018 reporting, MDEQ strongly encourages that all parties required to submit solid waste annual reports begin taking advantage of the new system. Owners of solid waste management facilities that have already registered with the MDEQ Re-TRAC program can use the link below to log into the program and to access and fill out the assigned report.
If you have not yet registered your solid waste management facility, please use the link below to register and access the reporting forms.
If you have any questions please contact Charlie Bock (cbock@mdeq.ms.gov) or Collin Selman (cselman@mdeq.ms.gov). Additionally, a guidance document has been developed in order to help users of the system and to answer any frequently asked questions.
