Welcome to the DEQ Waste Data System (WDS)

The Waste Data System (WDS) tracks activities at sites regulated by the Solid Waste, Scrap Tire, Hazardous Waste, and Liquid Industrial Waste programs. WDS can provide information on ownership and operation of the site; the status of any required permits, licenses, registrations, or certifications; compliance status; authorized transporters; shipments of hazardous or liquid industrial waste (manifest); and user fees.

Or, click here to access the Advanced Search page. Once you have selected a site, you will initially be taken to its dashboard page. You may then use the drop-down menu above to navigate through the site’s data as desired.

HOW TO SUBMIT A SITE IDENTIFICATION FORM (EQP5150)

Site Identification Numbers are assigned to the property and do not move to a new location if the business changes locations. Subsequently, you need to use the “Advanced Search” in the WDS to determine if the physical location already exists in the data system. A complete search will require entering different combinations of search criteria so you can account for variations in how the data may be stored, such as searching on:
  • • Street number and city
  • • Street number and county
  • • Street name and city
  • • Part of street number, street name, and city
