Idaho Solid Waste Management Facilities (18-ID-d)
Solid Waste Management Facilities Process
18-ID-d.1 - Is the volume of solid waste at the facility less than 300 cubic yards
If the facility has less than 300 cubic yards of waste at any one time, then the facility is below regulatory concern (BRC).
18-ID-d.2 - No approval needed; Continue with project
If the facility has less than 300 cubic yards of solid waste at any time, there is no need to seek certification.
18-ID-d.3 - Solid Waste Siting License Application, license fee & associated documents
A siting application is submitted to the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality with a map indicating:
- highways, roads and adjacent communities;
- property boundaries;
- total acreage of the site;
- off-site and on-site access roads and service roads;
- types of land uses adjacent to the facility and a description of all facilities on the site;
- all water courses within one-quarter mile of the proposed facility;
- high tension power line rights-of-way, fuel transmission pipeline rights-of-way and proposed and existing utilities;
- proposed or existing fencing;
- proposed and existing structures at the facility and within five hundred feet of the facility boundary; and
- the direction of the prevailing wind.
18-ID-d.4 - Certify application
A developer may increase the chances of a positive outcome by hiring a qualified expert to review the application and certify it. If a certified expert has reviewed the application, the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality will be inclined to grant the application unless the community becomes disruptive.
18-ID-d.5 - Solid Waste Siting License
As long as the application has been certified by an expert, the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality will be more likely to grant the permit, unless there is evidence disputing the prudence of the facility.
18-ID-d.6 - Monitoring and Measurement
Waste monitoring includes:
- a daily written log listing and quantities of wastes received;
- a plan for monitoring and handling receipt of unauthorized wastes;
- characterization of wastes; and
- any other monitoring or measurement requirements contained in the operating plan.
