Industrial and Hazardous Waste Permits - Renewal Application

Applying to renew a permit for an existing industrial or hazardous waste facility.

The procedures for renewing a solid waste permit are found in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (TAC) 305 Subchapter DExit the TCEQ.

Please allow up to 450 days for the TCEQ to process your application. You can find the application forms at Industrial and Hazardous Waste Forms and Guidance.

The TCEQ adopted amendments to 30 TAC 39, Public Notice, requiring newspaper notice in an alternative language for certain permit applications. These rule amendments were adopted and became effective November 30, 2005. Applications filed on or after that date are subject to the requirements for alternative language newspaper notices. A checklist for determining whether the alternative language notice requirement applies to a particular hazardous and/or industrial solid waste permit application is included in the TCEQ Part A and Part B hazardous waste permit applications. These forms, along with the notice language templates translated into Spanish, and the Public Notice Verification Form are available in Industrial and Hazardous Waste Forms and Guidance.
