Manifest & Taxes



Use of the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest is required by the Vermont Hazardous Waste Management Regulations (VHWMR). Hazardous waste generators, transporters, and treatment, storage and disposal facilities are required to track the movement of hazardous waste from the point of generation to any intermediate points and finally to its ultimate point of disposition.


Click here for instructions on how to complete the new manifest.   Click here to view a completed sample of the new federal manifest form (EPA Form 8700-22 (Rev. 3-05).    


Copies of the manifests shall be distributed as required per the manifest instructions.  Photocopies are not required to be sent from the generator to the destination state or generator state however, it is the generator's responsibility to ensure the State of Vermont receives the "designated facility to generator State" and/or "designated facility to destination State" copies.



Subchapter 7 of the VHWMR pertains to manifests, reporting and recordkeeping requirements and is posted at: http://www.anr.state.vt.us/dec/wastediv/rcra/documents/VHWMR_Adopted_Sub7_2013.pdf.

Vermont Specific Manifest Codes:

In addition to federally listed waste codes, the following wastes are listed as hazardous waste in Vermont: State specific waste codes .   Vermont also has State specific tax codes used to identify reduced tax rates, as well as exempt waste.

Permanent and Temporary EPA ID numbers:

The VHWMR requires hazardous waste generators to notify and obtain an EPA ID number by completing the VT Hazardous Waste Handler Site ID form - as specified in Subchapter 1 of the VHWMR.   For assistance, or if you have questions filling out the form please call (802)828-1138 and ask for someone in the Hazardous Waste Management section.  If you are unsure if your facility has a current Identification number, refer to the WM-ID search engine, search in the Hazardous Waste section.

Temporary EPA ID numbers are typically issued for the following situations: spills, household fuel tank closure, or one-time events.  To apply for a temporary number, complete the Temporary EPA ID number form. Temporary numbers will be active for a limited time of 90 days (after which time these numbers will become inactive and may not be used on manifest). 

For more information regarding EPA ID numbers see: http://www.anr.state.vt.us/dec/wastediv/rcra/handlers.htm.
