Nationwide, all Small Quantity and Large Quantity Generators of hazardous waste are required to utilize a multipage Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (EPA Form 8700-22) to track their shipments of hazardous waste. All parties (i.e. the generator, transporter(s), and the receiving facility) that handle the waste are required to:
- Sign and date the manifest.
- Retain copies of the manifest for three years.
The receiving facility must send a copy, which verifies receipt of the waste, back to the generator.
Montana does not require the receiving facility or the generator to, routinely, send a copy of the manifest to the Hazardous Waste Section.
