The final rulemaking was published December 22nd, 2017 and can be found here.

The registration deadline is February 1st, 2018.  Future registrations will also be due annually by February 1st. 

Beginning January 1, 2017, solid waste collectors should begin to track solid data for the purpose of reporting to the Office of Waste Diversion. The first solid waste report will require data for the entirety of calendar year 2017 and will be due February 1, 2018.

Annual reporting will include:

  • Location, name, and facility type of each delivery facility used to dispose of any solid waste collected in the District
  • Type of material delivered
  • Tonnage of the material delivered

Solid waste data will be submitted once per calendar year but the annual reporting form will require that solid waste data is broken out into quarters.
