SCPH currently inspects three active solid waste transfer facilities. These facilities are used for transferring solid waste from smaller trucks to larger, semi-trailers for transport to active solid waste landfills. These facilities are inspected quarterly, with additional inspections conducted as necessary. Violations to the OAC are noted during the inspections, and the responsible party is notified to correct the violations within a reasonable time frame. If the violations are not corrected, further enforcement action is taken to protect the environment and public health.
The Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) for solid waste transfer stations can be found here:
