Use Permit Application for a Solid Waste Management Facility

What Is a Conditional Use Permit for a Solid Waste Management Facility?

A conditional use permit for a solid waste management facility is required when the facility operates for the collection, source separation, storage, transportation, transfer, processing, recycling, composting, treatment, or disposal of solid waste. A conditional use permit for a solid waste management facility is required for all zoning districts. The conditional use permit process allows intensive review of the proposed operation to determine whether it is appropriate in specified situations and whether special conditions would make the use sufficiently compatible with the immediate area to warrant the granting of a use permit for the proposed solid waste management facility operations.
