EPA Ups e-Manifest User Fees for 2020-21
The fees are charged to receiving facilities (i.e., TSDFs) for each manifest submitted and are structured to encourage facilities to switch to the fully electronic manifest system as soon as possible. As we discussed in Lion News last week, so far only a fraction of hazardous waste manifests are originating in the electronic system.
The updated e-Manifest user fees take effect on October 1, 2019.
E-Manifest User Fees for 2020–21
|Submission Type||Fee per Manifest|
|Mailed in Paper Manifest||$25|
|Scanned Image Upload||$20|
|Data + Image Upload||$14|
Steadily rising fees may be a deciding factor for receiving facilities who are on the fence about enrolling in the electronic portal. As we covered last week, if the TSDF is not set up in the e-manifest system, then generators who send waste to that TSDF are unable to use the system.
The methodology EPA uses to calculate e-Manifest user fees is found at 40 CFR parts 264 and 265, subpart FF.
In its announcement of the new fees, EPA states that they received one million fewer manifests than expected in FY19. EPA is also facing a backlog of paper manifests that must be processed, due in part to a government shutdown during FY 2018.

This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!

I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.
