State Requirements


OAC 3745-50-35

An owner or operator of a hazardous waste land treatment facility must submit a monthly activity report to OEPA. The report must list the total tonnage of waste treated and be submitted no later than the fortieth day after the end of the month that the report covers. In addition, a monthly treatment fee must be submitted to OEPA with the monthly report if the facility is used to treat hazardous waste generated off-site. See the state section HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT to review the report and fee requirements.


Owners and operators of land treatment facilities must comply with additional permit application requirements and pay several state permit and facility fees. The state's more stringent permit standards, permit application fee, and annual permit fees are discussed in the state section TSDF PERMITS.
