Waste Manifests - How to keep track of your Garbage
recent months, Risk Management Safety and Environmental staff have been
involved with helping Maricopa County employees and managers with waste
manifest issues. Unless the waste can be generally characterized as "household",
both in quantity and content, then considerations regarding is disposal
as hazardous or non-hazardous must be addressed.
County, as a waste generator, is responsible for the proper handling,
shipping, and disposal of all its wastes as required by Federal and State
regulations. Once wastes have been shipped from a County facility, there
are certain time deadlines for documentation to be returned to the originating
department before the affected department is to report to a regulatory
this timeline and to help departments with maintaining the proper paperwork,
Risk Management has prepared a 1-page tracking form to assist employees
and supervisors with using waste manifests for both hazardous and non-hazardous
wastes. The following PDF files (requires Adobe
Acrobat Reader) present a completed "EXAMPLE" and a self-explanatory
"BLANK FORM" to be initiated by the generating department. Click
