Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

415 ILCS 5/56.4

    (415 ILCS 5/56.4) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 1056.4)
    Sec. 56.4. Medical waste manifests.
    (a) Manifests for potentially infectious medical waste shall consist of an original (the first page of the form) and 3 copies. Upon delivery of potentially infectious medical waste by a generator to a transporter, the transporter shall deliver one copy of the completed manifest to the generator. Upon delivery of potentially infectious medical waste by a transporter to a treatment or disposal facility, the transporter shall keep one copy of the completed manifest, and the transporter shall deliver the original and one copy of the completed manifest to the treatment or disposal facility. The treatment or disposal facility shall keep one copy of the completed manifest and return the original to the generator within 35 days. The manifest, as provided for in this Section, shall not terminate while being transferred between the generator, transporter, transfer station, or storage facility, unless transfer activities are conducted at the treatment or disposal facility. The manifest shall terminate at the treatment or disposal facility.
    (b) Potentially infectious medical waste manifests shall be in a form prescribed and provided by the Agency. Generators and transporters of potentially infectious medical waste and facilities accepting potentially infectious medical waste are not required to submit copies of such manifests to the Agency. The manifest described in this Section shall be used for the transportation of potentially infectious medical waste instead of the manifest described in Section 22.01 of this Act. Copies of each manifest shall be retained for 3 years by generators, transporters, and facilities, and shall be available for inspection and copying by the Agency.
    (c) The Agency shall assess a fee of $4.00 for each potentially infectious medical waste manifest provided by the Agency.
    (d) All fees collected by the Agency under this Section shall be deposited into the Environmental Protection Permit and Inspection Fund. The Agency may establish procedures relating to the collection of fees under this Section. The Agency shall not refund any fee paid to it under this Section.
