Managing waste

Waste Tracker is a system to track reportable priority waste. This system replaces waste transport certificates.

Under the laws, anyone who handles reportable priority waste must let EPA know every time it changes hands. Producers, accredited consigners, transporters, drivers and receivers of reportable priority waste must use Waste Tracker to complete transactions.
