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.

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).
