As of Sept. 5, 2006, all hazardous waste generators are required to use the new Federal Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest.  For more information on the changes or to order new manifests, visit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) manifest information. You may also contact your licensed hazardous waste transporter to learn if they have new procedures or updates due to the changes.

The Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest rule has been published in the Missouri Code of State Regulations.

  • Generators may no longer order hazardous waste manifests from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
  • Generators and Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities must follow the manifest distribution outlined in the federal register.
  • Generators do not need to include their Missouri generator identification number on the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest.
  • Generators should use state waste codes on the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest if federal waste codes do not apply. These include M001 through M012 for PCB wastes, MH02 for dioxin waste, D096 for the disposal of used oil with less than 50 ppm PCB's and D098 for the disposal of used oil.
  • Use the Hazardous Waste Generator's Exception Report (MO 780-0651) form when you have not received a manifest back from the designated facility within 35 days of the initial shipment. The generator must file the exception report with the department within 45 days of the initial shipment. Send exception reports to:

    Missouri Department of Natural Resources
    Hazardous Waste Program
    P.O. Box 176
    Jefferson City, MO 65102-0176

  • Generators should use the Generator's Hazardous Waste Summary Report forms. The changes to the forms make the reports consistent with the new universal manifest.
  • Transfer Storage and Disposal Facilities: Access EPA's list of management method codes to verify the proper code for your method of treatment, recovery, or disposal of hazardous waste. Record this information in field 19 of the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest.
  • Missouri requires all in-state and out of state treatment, storage, and disposal facilities to send in a copy of each Hazardous Waste Manifest received to the address above.
  • Remember to follow EPA's detailed instructions on how to fill out a Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest, you can also find these instructions on the back of each form.
  • For information on the proposed changes to Missouri regulations, visit Modifications of the Hazardous Waste Manifest System.
