Hazardous Waste Generators Not Required to Submit Copies of Manifests to Ohio EPA

Any company/business that generates hazardous waste (based on either the exhibition of characteristics such as ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity or because the waste is listed in the Code of Federal Regulations as a hazardous waste) and sends their waste to the State of Ohio for treatment or disposal is affected by this new initiative.

Some state hazardous waste regulations require hazardous waste generators to ensure that the Consignment State (the State receiving the hazardous waste for treatment or disposal) receives copies of the completed manifest(s) containing the handwritten signature of the owner operator of the designated hazardous waste generator's facility. Officials from the State of Ohio's Environmental Protection Agency have notified other states that they do not require copies of the manifest(s) submitted to their state.

For more information on how this affects you, contact your state Department of Environmental Protection. Some states may still consider not providing a manifest to Ohio a violation of state law or may be amending their requirements to reflect Ohio's request. For example, in New Jersey, Hazardous Waste Enforcement has stated that it will utilize its enforcement discretion to not issue a notice of violation to New Jersey hazardous waste generators for failing to submit copies of hazardous manifests to the State of Ohio’s EPA. This results in a paperwork reduction for hazardous waste generators
