Dry Cleaning Drop Stations and Facilities: Am I Regulated?

Guidelines for registering dry cleaning facilities, drop stations, and property owners with the Dry Cleaner Registration Program. Links to registration forms, rules, and related legislation.

Registration and Renewal for Facilities and Drop Stations

State law (30 Texas Administrative Code 337.10 ) requires all dry cleaning facilities and drop stations to register with TCEQ. Find registered dry cleaner facilities and drop stations. Dry cleaning facilities and drop stations must renew their registration by August 1st of each year. TCEQ will bill the registration fees after we receive the registration or renewal.

Submit forms via:

  • Email to
  • Fax to 512-239-3398 or 512-239-3399
  • Postal mail to:
    Texas Commission on Environmental Quality
    Dry Cleaner Registration Team (MC-138)
    P.O. Box 13087
    Austin, TX 78711-3087

We will send you a registration certificate for each facility or drop station after we process the registration or renewal and receive payment for any outstanding fees. Each facility must publicly display their registration certificate. Distributors of dry cleaning solvents must collect fees on the sale of dry cleaning solvents at certain facilities. 

Registration for Property Owners

House Bill 3220 , passed on June 15, 2007, addresses property owner participation in the Dry Cleaner Remediation Fund. The fund provides money for remediation activities associated with dry cleaners. HB 3220 also prohibits the use of perchloroethylene at sites that have used remediation funds.

  • Dry Cleaner property owners must  register if they currently participate in the Dry Cleaner Remediation Program.
  • Dry cleaner property owners who do not currently participate in the Dry Cleaner Remediation Program should  register only if they intend, either now or in the future, to apply for Dry Cleaning Facility Release Fund benefits.
  • If you register as the owner of a dry cleaning facility or drop station and you also own the property where the dry cleaning site is located, you do not need to register as a property owner to receive fund benefits.
