Hazardous Waste Permitting and Corrective Action Section

Zach Paden, Engineering Manager, (405) 702-5100

The Hazardous Waste Permitting and Corrective Action Section is composed of engineers, hydrologists, and geologists who review permit applications and write permits for hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities as authorized under the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), EPA regulations, the Oklahoma Hazardous Waste Management Act, and state rules.  These sites include hazardous waste landfill disposal sites, facilities that store hazardous wastes, hazardous waste transfer facilities, and certain types of recycling or treatment facilities.  The Section also oversees RCRA Corrective Action at various sites across Oklahoma.

Each facility that has a hazardous waste permit is identified below.  Click the link for the facility of interest to be taken to that facility’s web page to view or download the permit.  If you have questions about the permit, please call (405) 702-5100 and ask for the project manager for that facility.

The permits displayed by these links are to ensure the public has greater access to the activities of Hazardous Waste Permitting Section, but do not constitute official agency records.  If you wish to review the official agency records, please contact DEQ’s Central Records office at (405) 702-1188.  While every effort has been made to ensure these web pages are up-to-date, if there is a discrepancy between the records presented on these pages and those in DEQ’s Central Records, the records from our Central Records office will prevail.

Note: Some of the permit files may take some time to download because of their size.

The following facilities have permits authorizing them to accept hazardous waste from off-site generators.  Specific types and quantities of waste that may be accepted are outlined in the permit for the facility.  Permits are issued for a ten-year period and are modified from time to time during the term of the permit.  Permits may be renewed at the end of the ten-year period.  If a timely request for a renewal is received at the end of the permit term, the facility may continue to operate under the terms of the old permit until a new permit is issued.

The following facilities, known as Transfer Stations, operate as 10-day transfer facilities and are authorized to accept limited quantities of hazardous waste from off-site generators under limited conditions. They may also combine (or “bulk-up”) certain waste streams for more efficient shipping. These sites are not required to have full hazardous waste permits, but are required to have a DEQ-approved Development and Operations Plan outlining the types and quantities of wastes to be received and how those wastes will be managed. Plans do not have an expiration date though they may be modified from time to time.
