In an effort to encourage all hazardous waste receiving facilities to adopt fully electronic manifesting, the EPA has changed the fee structure for Manifest User Fees. Effective September 1, 2018 through September 30, 2019, hazardous waste receiving facilities will be charged based on a scale that rewards them for adopting the EPA’s fully-integrated, electronic system. The agency will continue to accept paper manifesting, but at a higher fee. Fluorescent lamp waste generators and other hazardous waste generators can expect to see an increase in their recycling cost as processors pass the new expense on to their customers.
TerraCycle Regulated Waste is aware of the new fees and is working to limit the impact on responsible recyclers. Contact your TerraCycle Regulated Waste representative directly for more information or questions.
