The e-Manifest system
  • Hazardous waste generators have the option of using paper hazardous waste manifests or opting into e-Manifest.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) launched its Electronic Hazardous Waste Manifest System, or e-Manifest, on June 30, 2018. After that date, hazardous waste generators have the option of using paper hazardous waste manifests or opting into e-Manifest.

Note on paper manifests: Prior to June 30, 2018, paper manifests consisted of six copies:

  • The generator signed and kept one copy,
  • The transporter(s) signed and kept one copy,
  • The receiving facility signed and kept one copy,
  • The receiving facility returned a signed copy to the generator,
  • The receiving facility or the generator sent a signed copy to the generator’s state (if required), and
  • The receiving facility or the generator sent a signed copy to the receiving facility’s state (if required).

After June 30, 2018, the paper manifest has only five copies. This is because states no longer receive a copy. Instead, the receiving facility will send one copy to EPA for data entry into a publicly accessible database.
