Hazardous Waste Manifest Regulations

Organization(s) Massachusetts Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) has promulgated the final regulations relating to the new hazardous waste manifest. The current Hazardous Waste regulations, along with MassDEP's responses to the comments on draft manifest amendments submitted after the proposed regulations were published on MassDEP’s website. The relevant part is section 30.310 (the generator's responsibilities). The important features include:

The generator has to use the six copy federal form now (EPA form 8700-22).

The new change is that the generator must provide a copy within 30 days to MassDEP when shipping directly to an out-of-state facility (30.313(4)).

If shipping to a destination within the state, generators do not have to send MassDEP a copy of the manifest. If that address is within Massachusetts, generators do not have to send a copy of the manifest to MassDEP.

The time for facilities to send manifest copies back to generators has also been lengthened from 14 to 30 days.

Massachusetts has adopted the federal rules for rejected shipments.
