“e-Manifest” is Pennsylvania’s record of tracking hazardous waste shipments electronically and is maintained by the PA DEP. The records are submitted to the EPA’s e-Manifest system modernizing the nation's cradle-to-grave hazardous waste tracking process while saving valuable time, resources, and dollars for industry and states. EPA launched e-Manifest on June 30, 2018.
This dataset includes the eManifest Generator and Disposal Sites both collected and stored electronically in the National Waste Management RCRA (Resource, Conservation and Recovery Act) Information System since 2018. The PADEP Waste Management Program has been working with their national counterparts in receiving and integrating this data with its state eManifest system and eFACTS, its enterprise application system. Discussions of major revisions to integrate these internal systems are underway, which could temporarily suspend the receipt of this information for an undetermined period of time. Refresh frequency is anticipated to occur quarterly, but may be delayed until the potential interruption in this service is resumed.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) maintains a list of Chemicals of Interest (COI). In cooperation with DHS this website excludes waste lines from the manifest, including the quantity, that contain COI. This website also excludes the manifest's shipped and received dates for manifests containing COI. These exclusions should be taken into account when using this data.
