Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) regulates the transportation of the following wastes: Used Tires, Special Waste including Hazardous Waste, and Potentially Infectious Medical Waste (PIMW). There are no manifest requirements for waste tires, but the other programs require that all loads be accompanied by the appropriate manifest forms purchased from IEPA.

Transporting Special Waste requires:

  1. A special waste hauling permit
  2. A Manifest
  3. Hazardous Special Waste
    • To transport RCRA or TSCA waste, you must obtain a U.S. EPA ID Number by filling out a form 8700-12.

For more information on transporting Special Waste, please contact

Transporting Potentially Infectious Medical Waste (PIMW) requires:

  1. A PIMW hauling permit
  2. A PIMW manifest purchased from IEPA, and
  3. Submission of reports of activities.

For more information on transporting PIMW, please contact

Applications not accompanied by completed 39(i) certificates will be rejected.
