Solid Waste Management
The Solid Waste Program ensures safe and sanitary processing and disposal of solid waste in Tennessee. It regulates material recovery facilities, transfer stations, and landfills for sanitary or municipal solid waste, industrial waste, farming wastes, and construction and demolition waste, some of which are subject to EPA RCRA Subtitle D. The Solid Waste Program operates under the authority of the Solid Waste Management Act of 1991 (T.C.A. §68-211-101 et seq.).
If you are an applicant or if you live in an area where a landfill or solid waste facility is being proposed, you may find information on the project in the TDEC Dataviewer. Begin your search by selecting the “Permit “ tab and the category of “Pending “ permits. Additional instructions for refining your search are found at the top of the Dataviewer page.
