Waste Programs Division: Solid Waste Management

ADEQ's solid waste program's responsibilities includes permitting and corrective action for solid waste facilities, performing inspections and providing compliance assistance, and advocating solid waste reduction, reuse and recycling.


Solid waste rules effective July 1, 2012, implemented fees for self-certification facilities, septage haulers, and transporters of biohazardous medical waste to pay registration and licensing fees. The fees are for initial registration of new or existing facilities and subsequent annual registration. A new fee schedule for solid waste facility plan reviews was also implemented.

Hazardous waste rules effective July 1, 2012, implemented an increase in application fees, set maximum fees, and established an hourly rate for processing hazardous waste permits.

Used Oil

In 1990 Arizona promulgated laws for managing used oil under Arizona Revised Statutes ยง 49-801 et. al. These laws include both regulatory provisions and enforcement provisions for managing used oil. In 1997, the regulatory provisions were replaced when Arizona adopted, by reference, the federal regulations for managing used oil, under 40 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 279 (40 CFR 279). As a result, Arizona's used oil program now consists of the regulatory provisions contained in 40 CFR 279, and additional regulatory provisions that were deemed appropriate for Arizona, and the enforcement provisions.
