Wastebits Insights™ provides powerful search criteria for identifying generators, facilities, and transporters across the United States. To save time, we've made it possible to save your searches for quick-loading so you don't have to fill out the search criteria every time.

Possible Search Criteria

With Wastebits Insights, there are hundreds of thousands of possible search combinations to help you drill down to find waste handlers. Here is a list of the current methods of searching and filtering generators, facilities, and transporters within Insights:

  • Keyword search (like handler id or shipping description)
  • Shipping dates
  • States
  • Zip codes + radius
  • Federal waste generator status
  • Federal waste codes
  • State waste codes
  • Container types
  • Disposal methods (i.e. management method codes)
  • NAICS codes
  • Used oil specific

Step 1: Select Filter Criteria

The first step in saving a search within Wastebits Insights is simply to perform a search and filter by using the fields at the top of the search and results page. You will then notice a Save link appear next to the display of your search criteria.


Step 2: Name and Save your Search

Because you will be able to select from a list of your saved searches, be sure to give your saved search a name that is descriptive and easy to remember. When you have entered the name for your search click Save Search.


How to View Saved Searches

You can view your saved searches by going to My Account in the upper right of the screen and selecting My Saved Searches.


How to Load a Saved Search

In the My Saved Searches screen, you will see a list of all of the titles that you have given your saved searches, as well as what the filters include and when they were created.
