Manifest Reports
  • The Manifest Reports page contains information on  generating reports from DTSC's Hazardous Waste Tracking System, and mailing addresses for submitting the paper forms.
  • The Hazardous Waste (HW) Summary Report is prepared from data extracted from the copies of hazardous waste manifests received each year by DTSC. The volume of manifests is typically 900,000 - 1,000,000 annually, representing approximately 450,000 - 500,000 shipments. The report provides complete generator and receiving facility information and is available in a compressed (zipped) text format for downloading.
