Special Waste Recertification

Who needs to submit a Special Waste Recertification?

Persons who have approval for a special waste to be processed or disposed of at an off-site facility and wish to continue to have approval must recertify the accuracy of the information on the Special Waste Application and Renewal form provided by the DSWM every three (3) fiscal years. This includes certifying that there has been no change in the waste stream or the process generating the waste since the original special waste approval was granted by the DSWM.

Recertification shall be submitted by July 1 of the third year from the original approval or the last recertification. Originals of such recertification forms shall be submitted to each off-site processing or disposal facility that receives the waste stream and copied to the DSWM at the address indicated on the form.  A separate recertification form is necessary for each off-site processing or disposal facility that receives the waste stream. All special waste approvals will expire on July 1 of the third year from approval if not recertified as provided herein.

If a change in the waste stream or the process generating the waste has occurred since the original special waste approval was granted, the generator (applicant) shall submit a new special waste application to the DSWM.  If the application is incomplete due to insufficient information/data provided in the application, the DSWM will request additional information/data in order to complete an evaluation.
