Municipal Liquid Waste Disposal

Requirements that must be met for the landfill disposal of sludge wastes in Texas. Links to related information.

Overview

Sludges, grease trap waste, grit trap waste, and other liquid wastes from municipal sources generally must be processed before disposal. The liquid portion may be discharged to an authorized wastewater treatment facility in accordance with applicable rules and any additional requirements set forth by the treatment facility.

Waste solids produced by a municipal liquid waste processing facility can be accepted for disposal at a Type I municipal solid waste landfill if the material has been tested and certified to contain no free liquids.

Some municipal liquid wastes may be composted, or recycled, or applied to the land for beneficial use.
