Requirement to Submit an MSW Annual Report

Operators of permitted or registered MSW facilities are required by 30 TAC Chapter 330, Subchapter PExit the TCEQ or Chapter 326, Subchapter GExit the TCEQ (for medical waste facilities) to report to the TCEQ the types and amounts of waste processed or disposed, and remaining disposal capacity.

Reports are based on the Texas state fiscal year, which runs from September 1 through August 31. Reports for fiscal year 2021 (September 1, 2020, through August 31, 2021) were due November 10, 2021.

The TCEQ analyzes the data provided in these reports and publishes an annual summary report titled Municipal Solid Waste in Texas: A Year in Review (TCEQ publication AS-187). Please visit our MSW Annual Summary web page for links to summary reports for past fiscal years.
