Hazardous Waste Program Projects Hazardous Waste Manifest System

The Hazardous Waste Manifest System is a set of forms, reports, and procedures designed to seamlessly track hazardous waste from the time it leaves the generator facility where it was produced, until it reaches the off-site waste management facility that will store, treat, or dispose of it. The system allows the waste generator to verify that its waste has been properly delivered and that no waste has been lost or unaccounted for in the process. State and federal RCRA programs consider this cradle-to-grave tracking as an essential component of effective hazardous waste management.

State agencies receive copies of the manifests from haulers and have developed various approaches to managing, storing, and retrieving the information. In 2012, Congress passed legislation and authorized funding to create an electronic system for completing, submitting, and sharing the manifests.

In 2012, NEWMOA initiated a Hazardous Waste Manifest Workgroup to help state programs share information on their collection, storage, and retrieval of manifests and to facilitate member involvement in the development of the new national electronic manifest system that the EPA is developing. The Workgroup launched this Project by creating a matrix [XLS] that summarizes for each state who submits the manifests, their methods of storing them, contact/s for the program, and other useful information.
