Regulatory Agency

Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) Waste Programs Division

See national section for basic information and federal regulations.

Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The EPA requires Arizona (and all states) to use the federal form of manifest: the standardized Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest (EPA Form 8700-22) and its continuation sheet (EPA Form 8700-22A). Arizona has adopted by reference the federal manifest rules. Waste handlers in Arizona should go to the national section MANIFESTS for guidance on how to prepare the manifest form and how to deal with related manifest issues, such as manifest discrepancies and rejected shipments. There are no additional state manifest requirements for transporters and treatment, storage and disposal facilities (TSDFs). Generators must pay a fee to the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) if they need to revise an improperly completed manifest form.

For information on manifesting special wastes, see the state section SOLID WASTE.

Administration and enforcement. The ADEQ administers and enforces the state's manifest rules.
