Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifesto

Posted By :
Comments : Off

According to the Hazardous Wastes Section of the website … “the current 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 the hazardous waste.”

The system provides for making sure the hazardous waste has been properly delivered, and that there is no lost waste or anything unaccounted for during the process.

The Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest is the key component of this system. This form is required by both the Department of Transportation and the EPA. You can click here to download a copy of the manifest. All waste generators who transport, or offer for transport, hazardous waste for offsite treatment, recycling, storage, or disposal must prepare a Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest.

The manifest contains the following information:

  • Type and quantity of the waste being transported
  • Instructions for handling the waste
  • Signature lines for all parties involved. (Each party that handles the waste signs the manifest and keeps a copy for themselves.)

Once the waste reaches its destination, the receiving facility returns a signed copy of the manifest to the generator to confirm that the waste has been received by the designated facility.

You should also check with your State since they have additional State requirements. You can click here to check your State.

This short article should provide you with a starting point for making sure you are doing everything according to Federal and State requirements.
