PegEx, Inc. recently announced an update to its waste management software as a service platform that leads the way in solving the e-Manifest problem the waste industry has been experiencing.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) just announced a major price hike for submitting a paper manifest, raising the price from $15 to $25. This was done in an attempt to force waste generators to switch to e-Manifest, which costs $8 per submission.
The problem that has everyone up in arms is trying to use the EPA's RCRAInfo e-Manifest system, which can be a slow, tedious and frustrating process. According to PegEx, the PegEx Platform enables a two-way connection with the EPA's RCRAInfo Portal.
PegEx said it has solved the e-Manifest problem by creating software that makes it “fast and easy” to create and submit e-Manifests directly to the EPA's RCRAInfo Portal. The software also makes it easy to print EPA and Department of Transportation approved paper copies of a manifest using a normal printer.
“Our main goal is to help our customers move from a paper-based workflow to a digital workflow, transforming their business to be more streamlined and efficient. Our e-Manifest technology is just one part of that process. If you want to go all digital, and save a lot of money, we have you covered. But if you still need paper copies, it’s easy to create and print a PDF. If you are still stuck in the dot-matrix world, we have a solution for that as well,” said Jason Konen, vice president of product development for PegEx, in a statement. “We automate much of the process of filling out the manifest plus we provide two-way communications with the EPA RCRAInfo Portal. Submitting your manifest electronically is as easy as a click of a button.”
