Although TRC sent notices along with all the manifests that we generated earlier this year, it may be a good reminder to Minnesota generators that the MPCA is no longer requiring you to mail in the “Designated Facility to generator’ (3 signature copy) manifest copies. Generators in Scott and Anoka counties still need to send in their copies to their respective Counties.
“For administrative and budgetary reasons, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), and the Metropolitan Counties of Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington (Metro Counties) have changed the requirements for submittal of hazardous waste manifest copies.
Effective April 30, 2016, all hazardous waste generators of any size in Anoka and Scott counties must submit manifest copies directly to their county.
Hazardous waste generators of all sizes anywhere else in Minnesota except Anoka or Scott County should no longer submit any manifest copies to either the MPCA or their county unless explicitly requested.
You may find a detailed discussion of this change in newly revised MPCA Factsheet #w-hw1-07, ‘Manifest Shipments of Hazardous Waste’ at:
