  Waste Manifests - How to keep track of your Garbage

In 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.

Maricopa 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 authority.

To address 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 on the appropriate image or link to open.

If you have any questions, please contact the HAZMAT Consultant at Maricopa County Risk Management - Occupational Safety & Health Division (602-506-7179) or an Environmental Consultant with the Environmental Division (602-506-5063/602-506-2891). These persons can provide technical guidance and consultation to ensure that regulatory compliance is met and that people and the environment are protected.
