Permit Fees & Renewals

The fees for operating permits are listed in the fee schedule in Chapter I of the Maricopa County Environmental Health Code. The fee for a non-hazardous solid waste (NHSW), non-hazardous liquid waste (NHLW) or bio-hazardous medical waste transportation vehicle operating permit is assessed on a per vehicle basis. The fees for refuse containers or chemical toilets are assessed based on the number of containers, units or toilets being permitted. Construction debris landfills are charged a fixed fee amount for each individual landfill.

The department's Administrative Services sends notices for operating permit renewal fees on an annual basis. Renewal eligibility is contingent on compliance with the rules and regulations.
