The Solid Waste Program regulates safe management of solid waste through guidance, technical assistance, regulations, permitting, environmental monitoring, compliance evaluation and enforcement. Waste types handled at these facilities include municipal solid waste, industrial waste, construction and demolition waste, land-clearing waste, scrap tires, medical waste, compost and septage.

The Solid Waste Section does not have the statutory authority to issue permits for the installation of domestic septic systems (e.g. septic tanks and /or nitrification field lines). That authority lies with and is the responsibility of your local government (i.e. county or other municipal government). Please contact your local health department for further information specific to your location.

The Solid Waste Section is proud to announce that we are now able to accept Credit Cards for payments. Please visit our ePayment page to see all the options available now.
