EPA has established a national system for tracking hazardous waste shipments electronically. This system, known as "e-Manifest", will modernize the nation's cradle-to-grave hazardous waste tracking process while saving valuable time, resources, and dollars for industry and states.
The USEPA is legally required to recalculate e-Manifest fees every two fiscal years, as required by the regulations in 40 CFR §264.1313 and §265.1313. The e-Manifest service fees are used to pay the costs incurred in developing, operating, maintaining and upgrading the e-manifest system, including costs incurred in the processing of paper manifest submissions. On July 23, 2019, EPA publicly released new e-Manifest user fees, which will be effective from October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2021. As a result, Waste Management will also increase our manifest surcharge that will cover this regulatory fee along with expenses incurred by WM to comply with this requirement and to achieve an acceptable operating margin.
