Managing Hazardous Waste

We strengthen regulations and streamline waste management

Manifest & Miscellaneous Fees

Manifest Forms

(Section 66262.20 of Title 22 CCR.)

A generator who transports, or offers for transportation, hazardous waste for offsite transfer, treatment, storage, or disposal will prepare a Manifest before the waste is transported offsite. The national Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest Form is available only from registered printers approved by the U.S. EPA. Registered printers are available via the U.S. EPA website.

Manifest Reprocessing Fee

(H&SC Section 25160.5)

 DTSC has authority to assess a $20 reprocessing fee for each improperly completed Manifest Form that is returned to the person who completed the manifest.

Manifest User Fee

(H&SC Section 25205.15)

DTSC is authorized to assess a fee of $7.50 for each manifest used, except that manifests used solely for recycled waste are exempt. The first four non-recycled manifests used in a calendar year by a business with less than 100 employees are free. The fee is due within 30 days from the date of receipt of notice by DTSC. The fee for a manifest that is used solely for hazardous waste derived from air compliance solvents is $3.50. Persons, who erroneously report this type of waste, or recycled waste, on a manifest that is actually used for transportation of other types of waste, will pay the $7.50 Manifest Fee plus the error correction fee of $20.00 per manifest. The Manifest User Fee is not subject to annual CPI adjustment. More information about manifests can be found on our Hazardous Waste Manifest Information web page.

In accordance with the requirements of the State Administrative Manual, DTSC may charge a fee for any requests to retrieve and copy Departmental records.
