“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.
This dataset contains aggregate data by clinic for COVID-19 doses that are reported to the Pennsylvania Statewide Immunization System (PA-SIIS) as waste or spoilage.
Data includes the name, address and county of the clinics and the quantities of doses reported based on CDC’s standard waste reason codes or spoilage.
Spoilage is defined as nonviable, unopened vials of vaccine. This typically includes vaccine that has expired and vaccine that was not kept stored at the correct temperature (due to conditions such as equipment failure).
Wastage is defined as nonviable doses from opened vials. Standard CDC reasons are as follows:
• Broken Vial or Syringe
• Vaccine drawn (into syringe) but not administered
• Lost or unaccounted for vaccine
• Open vial but not administered
Data only includes information reported to PA-SIIS, the Pennsylvania Statewide Immunization Information System. Providers participating in the COVID-19 Program that are located in Philadelphia County or who are receiving vaccine inventory directly from CDC are not included in this dataset since they do not report inventory information to PA-SIIS.
RCRAInfo is an information system constructed and maintained by EPA to support the national hazardous waste program as defined by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The system is used by States and Regional/Headquarter EPA, to gain insight into the management of the hazardous waste program at both the state and national level.
Hazardous waste information is contained in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act Information (RCRAInfo), a national program management and inventory system about hazardous waste handlers. In general, all generators, transporters, treaters, storers, and disposers of hazardous waste are required to provide information about their activities to state environmental agencies. These agencies, in turn pass on the information to regional and national EPA offices. This regulation is governed by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984.
The public may use the RCRAInfo Search to determine identification and location data for specific hazardous waste handlers, and to find a wide range of information on treatment, storage, and disposal facilities regarding permit/closure status, compliance with Federal and State regulations, and cleanup activities.
