e-Manifest Usage Low as June 30 Deadline Looms

How Will the Deadline Impact Generators?Because receiving facilities now must submit manifests to EPA electronically, TSDFs may request that generators create an account in the online system.
Some generators may not feel the impact right away. Some TSDFs may continue to accept paper manifests and then manually transfer the required information into the e-manifest system using the image upload or data-plus-image upload option. These alternatives are more expensive than the fully electronic option.
While the deadline for hazardous waste generators to use the e-Manifest system is June 1, 2023, EPA has not yet announced a “sunset date” for paper manifests.
e-Manifest Usage Up Slightly
About 3% of the manifests that EPA receives are submitted in paper format, as of late April 2021.
0.5% of all manifests are completed entirely online.
That’s an improvement. At the end of February 2020, EPA was receiving 4.4% of all manifests in paper form, and only 0.3% of manifests were created "fully electronic." Use of the electronic hazardous waste manifest system is increasing, but is still far below what EPA hoped when it finalized the e-Manifest Final Rule.
Despite the slow adoption of the new tool, the vision of a fully electronic system to track shipments of hazardous waste is alive and well.

I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
Hazardous Waste Technician
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
This is the best RCRA training I've experienced! I will be visiting Lion training again.

I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.

I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.

Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
