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.

Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!

The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.

I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.

Having the tutorial buttons for additional information was extremely beneficial.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
The course is well thought out and organized in a way that leads to a clearer understanding of the total training.
