The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) is a federal program that requires certain facilities to report their chemical release data to EPA. The data are due by July 1 and cover waste management activities that occurred during the previous calendar year. EPA makes these data publicly available. Some states have additional reporting requirements under TRI.
TRI facilities are required to report releases of toxic chemicals into the air, water, and land. In addition, they must report off-site transfers (i.e., transfers of wastes for treatment or disposal at a separate facility). Facilities are also required to report pollution prevention activities and chemical reporting.
Facilities that manufacture, process, or otherwise use certain hazardous chemicals must report to TRI each year.
