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 the ultimate point of disposition. Subchapter 7 of the VHWMR pertains to manifests reporting and recordkeeping requirements.

New Management Method Codes
http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/inforesources/data/biennialreport/index.htm The “2013 Hazardous Waste Report Instructions and Forms” booklet (aka the “Biennial Report”) includes revised management method codes which EPA expects all waste handlers to use on their manifests starting July 1, 2013.
Copies of the manifests shall be distributed as required per the manifest instructions. 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. Vermont does not require additional photocopies to be sent of the initial manifest when it leaves the generation site.
If a generator does not receive a signed copy of the manifest from the designated facility within 35 days of the date the waste was shipped by the initial transporter, he/she is required to contact the transporter and/or designated facility to determine the status of the hazardous waste.
If a generator does not receive a signed copy of the manifest from the designated facility within 45 days of the date the waste was shipped by the initial transporter, he/she must submit an Exception Report to the Secretary. The Exception Report shall include: (1) a legible copy of the missing manifest for the waste; and (2) a cover letter signed by the generator or his or her authorized representative explaining the efforts taken to locate the waste and results of those efforts.
Generators can verify that the Waste Management and Prevention Division has received a manifest from the designated facility by using the Environmental Research Tool. We recommend that generators check manifests quarterly, starting with the previous quarter (as the current quarter's manifest may not be entered).
