Since new regulations went into effect on September 5, 2006, generators of hazardous waste have been required to use a new uniform hazardous waste manifest form developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). All previous versions of the hazardous waste manifest are obsolete. The use of an obsolete manifest form is a violation of State and federal hazardous waste management regulations.
Highlights of the change include:
Where can I get the new forms?
See EPA’s website of approved registered printers for a list of manifest providers. Your hazardous waste contractor may also be able to provide the manifest form. MDE is not currently planning to become a registered printer of manifests.
Who does this change affect?
Generators of hazardous waste, transporters of hazardous waste, and operators of hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facilities.
