National Summary
Required by both the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a hazardous waste manifest is the shipping paper for hazardous waste. The paper manifest travels with the hazardous waste from the point of generation, through transportation, to the final treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDF). Each party in the chain of shipping, including the generator, signs and keeps a manifest copy, creating a "cradle to grave" tracking of the hazardous waste. Hazardous waste shipments offered for transportation by a generator and shipped to a TSDF may, alternatively, be tracked with an electronic manifest.
