New Hazardous Waste Manifest: Maryland-specific Requirements

Hazardous Waste Manifest: Maryland-Specific Requirements

Although the uniform hazardous waste manifest form is now identical in all 50 states some aspects of the use of the manifest still differ from state to state.  In particular, states may vary in:

The following identifies Maryland-specific requirements on these topics.

For more information, see the links to the right under “Related Topics”, especially the “Answers to Frequently Asked Questions”.  Also see the “New Hazardous Waste Manifest” link to the left.

Distribution of Manifest Copies

Maryland requires that, in addition to the distribution of manifest copies required by federal regulations, the following distributions of copies of the manifest be made:

  • The destination facility (treatment, storage, disposal or recycling facility to which hazardous waste is sent) is required to provide the Maryland Department of the Environment, Hazardous Waste Program, with a copy of the manifest.  A copy of the manifest is required to be submitted by the destination facility irrespective of whether the facility is located in Maryland or another state.
  • A destination facility located in Maryland that receives a shipment of waste from an out-of-state generator is only required to send a copy of the manifest to the generator’s state regulatory agency only if the generator’s state requires submission of the copy.
  • The generator is not required to submit a copy of the manifest to the Maryland Department of the Environment. 
  • A Maryland generator sending waste to a destination facility in another state should check that state’s requirements to see if the generator must submit a copy of the manifest to that state.

The following table summarizes these requirements:

Submission of Copies to Regulatory Agencies

Situation

Action Required

Destination facility located in MD receives a waste shipment from a MD generator.

Destination facility submits Page 1 of manifest (top copy) and Page 2 of manifest to MDE.

Destination facility located in MD receives a waste shipment from a generator located outside MD.

Destination facility submits Page 1 of manifest (top copy) to MDE.

Destination facility submits Page 2 of manifest to generator state regulatory agency only if the generator state requires submission of the copy.

Destination facility located in a state other than MD receives a waste shipment from a MD generator

Destination facility submits Page 2 of manifest to MDE.

Destination facility submits Page 1 of manifest (top copy) to destination state regulatory agency only if the destination state requires submission of the copy.

MD generator sends a shipment of waste to a destination facility located in MD.

Generator not required to submit any copies of manifest to MDE.

MD generator sends a shipment of waste to a destination facility located outside MD.

Generator not required to submit a copy of the manifest to MDE.

Generator needs to check to see if destination state regulatory agency requires submission of copy by generator.

Out-of-state generator sends a shipment of waste to a destination facility located in MD.

Generator not required to submit a copy of the manifest to MDE.

Except for those wastes as excluded by Regulation .26 of this chapter:

a) Residues from the treatment of a liquid having one or more of the hazardous waste numbers K991—K999 if the treatment method, to the Secretary's satisfaction, consistently produces no residue that meets the criteria of Regulation .09A(2) of this chapter for listing as an acute hazardous waste; or

(b) A solid item that:

                (i) Is known to or is thought to have contained, on the item's surface or within the item through sorption, one or more of the hazardous wastes K991—K999;

                (ii) Has been successfully decontaminated, that is, has been decontaminated sufficiently to allow safe disposition through commercial hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities; and

                (iii) Contains none of the wastes K991—K999 in greater than very small, insignificant amounts.

Agency note: Once the MD03 hazardous waste number is assigned to a waste, the K hazardous waste number associated with the waste from which the MD03 waste is derived is no longer applicable.

Agency note: A solid item, assigned a hazardous waste number K991—K999 because it contained the corresponding waste, no longer carries the K hazardous waste number if the solid item has been successfully decontaminated and no longer contains the K waste in more than very small, insignificant amounts. A solid item that no longer contains residues from the decontamination of a hazardous waste K991—K999 does not carry the MD03 hazardous waste number.
