Sludge Transporter Reporting

Information on reporting requirements for sludge transporters, including record keeping and annual summary reports.

To comply with the recordkeeping requirements for sludge transporters, keep accurate records and file reports on time. Record each of waste collection and disposal on each trip ticket, and file an accurate Annual Summary Report (form TCEQ-0316) each year. (Help with PDF)

Keep Your Records up to Date

If you transport sludge wastes, you can ensure that your records stay up to date in these ways:

  • Keep up with your trip tickets (also called waste manifests)
  • If you deliver wastes to "beneficial use sites," keep the additional documentation needed for this activity
  • Watch for discrepancies between the information in your records and the wastes you transport

File Your Annual Summary Report on Time Each Year

As a registered transporter, you must file an Annual Summary Report (ASR; TCEQ-0316) by July 1 each year. This report is a summary of the waste that you transported from June 1 of one year through May 31 of the following year. Each line of the report shows the total amount of each type of waste transported to a receiver during that reporting period. Use your trip tickets for that reporting period to get the information needed to complete your ASR, but do not list each trip ticket on the report.

For more details on reporting requirements and what forms need to be completed, see the Step-by-Step Guide to Registration, Operating, and Reporting Requirements for Transporting Sludge Wastes in Texas (RG-309). For state rules regarding sludge use, disposal, and transportation, see Title 30 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 312, Subchapter G, Section 312.145 Exit the TCEQ.
