Tennessee Manifest Requirements

Federal regulations require use of a hazardous waste manifest system to track hazardous waste whenever it is transported. The U.S. Environment Protection Agency (EPA) maintains a Manifest Registry of specific sources authorized to print and distribute the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest forms. The state of Tennessee does not print blank manifest forms and does not have any state specific waste codes. 

The EPA will launch the hazardous waste electronic manifest (e-Manifest) system on June 30, 2018. To use the e-Manifest module in the RCRAInfo Industry Application, individual users will need to register for the system. Please see the EPA website for instructions on how to register for a RCRAInfo account and e-Manifest.

If you do not have an EPA ID number for a site located within the state of Tennessee and wish to use the e-manifest system, please submit a completed EPA ID number application to TDEC using the state of Tennessee forms.

Tennessee does not require copies of manifests be submitted to the State, regardless of whether the waste originates or is disposed of in the state. However, the e-Manifest program requires that all hazardous waste receiving facilities submit manifests to the EPA. The state of Tennessee will not accept these manifests and will not forward them to the EPA. If you are submitting hard copy manifests to the EPA, please mail them to the following address:

EPA e-Manifest PPC
14295 Park Meadow Drive - 5th Floor
Chantilly, VA 20151

E-manifest data will become publicly available at RCRA Online on November 1, 2018. The first release of public manifests will cover manifests received from June 30 - July 31. Thereafter, EPA will release new manifests on a weekly basis.
