The e-Manifest System has been established

EPA has established a national system for tracking hazardous waste shipments electronically. This system known as the “e-Manifest” will modernize the nation’s cradle to grave hazardous waste tracking process. The e-Manifest system allows for three types of hazardous waste manifest creation options:

  • Paper (generator, transporter, and receiving facility all sign on paper).
  • Hybrid (starts as paper manifest signed by the generator and then is signed electronically by the transporter and receiving facility).
  • Electronic (created in e-Manifest and electronically signed by all entities listed on the manifest).

Beginning on June 30, 2018, all receiving facilities must submit manifests to EPA. Electronic and hybrid manifests are submitted to EPA instantaneously, as they are signed electronically in the system. If a paper manifest is use, the receiving facility must submit the manifest to EPA within 30 days of receipt.

There will be a user fee based on the published rates depending on what type of manifest creation is used. Midwest customers should expect to be invoiced for manifest use provided.
