New from EPA: Electronic Hazardous Waste Tracking System

A new Hazardous Waste Electronic Mainifest System (e-Manifest) for shipments of hazardous waste was launched by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on June 30, 2018. The Association of State and Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO) has been working with the EPA to ensure a smooth transition from the paper intensive process to the electronic system. The association’s officials stated that e-Manifest “will allow states to more efficiently review hazardous waste manifest data, thus ensuring better protection of human health and the environment.” For the EPA press release, click here.
