Waste Management & Hazardous Waste Manifest Information 1990 - Current Statewide Environmental Protection

Energy And The Environment

This dataset contains hazardous waste generation and disposal information in Pennsylvania. The source of data comes from a combination of EPA’s e-Manifest system and the Pennsylvania Waste Information Management System (PWIMS). Prior to July 2018, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection maintained hazardous waste manifest information in PWIMS. EPA launched the e-Manifest system in July 2018 to modernize the national cradle-to-grave hazardous waste tracking system.

Refresh frequency is anticipated to occur quarterly, but may be delayed until the potential interruption in this service is resumed.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) maintains a list of Chemicals of Interest (COI). In cooperation with DHS this website excludes waste lines from the manifest, including the quantity, that contain COI. This website also excludes the manifest's shipped and received dates for manifests containing COI. These exclusions should be taken into account when using this data.
