[page 1 of 1]

Contents:

Sec.

§484.1 Who must Pay and How Much

(a) Each person required to obtain a permit, certificate or approval pursuant to the waste transporter permit requirements set forth in title 3 of article 27 of the ECL must annually submit to the department a waste transporter program fee determined as follows:

(1) If the permit is to transport industrial-commercial waste or low-level radioactive waste:

(i) $500 for the first vehicle permitted; and

(ii) $200 for each additional vehicle permitted.

(2) For any other person:

(i) $250 for the first vehicle permitted; and

(ii) $100 for each additional vehicle permitted.

(b) All persons required to obtain a permit, certificate or approval pursuant to the waste transporter permit requirements set forth in title 15 of article 27 of the ECL shall submit annually to the department a fee in the amount of $500 for the first vehicle permitted, certified or approved for the transportation of regulated medical waste, and $200 for each additional vehicle so permitted, certified or approved, unless exempt from the payment of fees pursuant to ECL-27-1511 and section 484.4 of this Part.

(c) The permit year is used to calculate the waste transporter program fee.

(d) Changes such as license plate numbers, replacement plates or other similar changes that do not result in an increase in the number of permitted vehicles will not require an additional fee.

§484.2 What the Department Reviews to Determine the Waste Transporter Program Fee

(a) In determining the annual program fee the department will rely upon the number of vehicles listed on the waste transporter permit filed pursuant to title 3 of article 27 of the ECL. The fee will be prorated for vehicles issued permits for less than a full year. Nothing in this section shall prevent the department from determining a fee based upon the actual number of vehicles used by a transporter to transport regulated waste if it is more than the number of vehicles listed on the permit.

§484.3 Local Agency Delegation Pursuant to ECL 27-0305

Where a city or county is delegated the authority to administer the State Waste Transporter Program pursuant to subdivision four of section 27-0305 of this chapter, and such city or county collects a fee in connection with the issuance of a permit, certificate or approval for a waste transporter, no additional liability for fees under this section shall accrue.

§484.4 Exemption from Fees for Medical Waste Transporters

(a) Transporters of medical waste that meet the following requirements are exempt from paying waste transporter fees:

(1) operate as a not-for-profit corporation as defined in Not-for-Profit Corporation Law, section 102 or a governmental organization;

(2) generate less than 100 pounds per month of regulated medical waste; and

(3) transport only their own waste in accordance with all provisions of the ECL.

§484.5 Exemption from Fees for Unused Permits

Any person receiving a waste transporter permit that cannot be utilized as issued, through no fault of the permittee, shall not be held liable for the resulting regulatory fee, provided that the permittee submits documentation to the department that the permit cannot be utilized.
