Air GOP No. 517: Municipal Solid Waste Landfill General Operating Permit

Information and documentation pertaining to Air Municipal Solid Waste Landfill General Operating Permit No. 517.

Municipal Solid Waste Landfill (MSWLF) sites subject to Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR) Part 60, Subpart WWW (Standards of Performance for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills), or 40 CFR Part 63, Subpart AAAA (National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants: Municipal Solid Waste Landfills) are required to be permitted under a Title V permit and may apply to operate under the MSWL GOP Permit Number 517.

Streamlined Processing

The TCEQ has amended and is adopting a new streamlined approach to MSWLF preconstruction and federal operating permit requirements. As a part of this process, and to meet federal requirements, the only sites able to use the MSWLF GOP No. 517 in the future will be those who can meet 30 Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC) Chapter 106 Permits by Rule under Section 106.534, Exit the TCEQor the Standard Permit under Section 330.981, Exit the TCEQ See the Guidance for additional information on the various air authorizations and requirements.

To further assist MSWFL operators in determining whether their site needs a GOP, the TCEQ has developed a GOP Checklist (TCEQ Form-20297) (available in PDF or DOC) and a NSPS WWW GOP Applicability checklist (TCEQ Form-20301) (available in PDF or DOC) which may show the need for a GOP. Once it is determined that a GOP is needed, an application needs to be submitted (or updated if previously submitted). The GOP Application Form is combined with the Standard Permit Certification (TCEQ Form-20296) (available in PDF or DOC) and must be submitted by the landfill’s Responsible Official (RO) or Duly Authorized Representative (DAR). No fee is required with a GOP application. When you apply or update information for a GOP, the submittal must demonstrate how and why you are subject to meet various state and federal requirements of the GOP. To make this demonstration easier, the TCEQ has developed the following checklists:

  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Flares (TCEQ Form-20298) (PDF or DOC)
  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Stationary Engines (TCEQ Form-20319) (PDF or DOC)
  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Storage Tanks (TCEQ Form-20320) (PDF or DOC)
  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Loading and Unloading Operations (TCEQ Form-20312) (PDF or DOC)
  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Process Heaters (TCEQ Form-20329) (PDF or DOC)

  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Turbines (TCEQ Form-20315) (PDF or DOC)
  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Process Vents (TCEQ Form-20310) (PDF or DOC)
  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Surface Coating (TCEQ Form-20317) (PDF or DOC)
  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Air Curtain Incinerators (TCEQ Form-20311) (PDF or DOC)
  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Water Separators (TCEQ Form-20313) (PDF or DOC)
  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Existing Sites under Chapter 113 (TCEQ Form-20314) (PDF or DOC)

  • MSWLF GOP Checklist for Degreasers (TCEQ Form-20318) (PDF or DOC)
