BVSWMA customer Guidearch 1994 Printed on Recycled Paper TABLE OF CONTENTS Page Introduction 1 Terms and Definitions 3 Disposal Policies 12 Prohibited Waste 13 Waste Screening Program 15 Appendix 18 INTRODUCTION BVSWMA stands for the Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency. The BVSWMA landfill is a Type I municipal solid waste facility which is permitted to accept municipal solid waste as well as dewatered wastewater treatement grits and sludges. Our permit number is 1444A. The landfill is located in College Station, Texas about 2 miles east of the highway 6 bypass on Rock Prairie road on the south side of town. The landfill receives on the average about 570 tons of waste per day and spans a 120 acre area. The customers we serve are commercial haulers, private citizens, and municipalities from around the Brazos and surrounding counties. Many of the concerns surrounding municipal solid waste landfills, such as the Brazos Valley Landfill, stem from concerns for public health, the environment, and the safety of landfill employees. These concerns are directly translated into a concern over the municipal waste stream. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is required by the U.S. Congress to implement national environmental policy and laws. For solid waste, the law is the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The Texas legislature has also enacted laws dealing with solid waste. The Texas Solid Waste Disposal Act is the state's solid waste law and requires the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) to adopt regulations to implement the state laws. The TNRCC has adopted a series of regulations to implement the state laws. One which has recently been implemented is Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 330 (30 TAC 330), Municipal Solid Waste Management Regulations. These regulations are specifically designed to address the solid waste concerns mentioned above. The organization which deals directly with these regulations is the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC). The regulations dictate the following: * Acceptable site locations, * Waste containment systems, * Surface and ground water protection,_. * Control and management of by-products or disposal of contaminated water and landfill gas, * Long-term care of closed sites, and * Prevention of unacceptable wastes in the landfill. Some of the specific actions required by the TNRCC in order for landfills to meet the goals of the regulations involve the implementation of a comprehensive waste screening program and an extensive record -keeping system. Due to the scope and nature of these requirements, the Brazos Valley Landfill will also be establishing more efficient standardized landfill policies. The following pages will contain the formalized rules and regulations as well as a description of the new waste screening program. TERMS AND DEFINITIONS These definitions are taken from 30 TAC 330 Municipal Solid Waste Regulations. Any reference to "this title" refers specifically to these regulations.

LANDFILL DISPOSAL POLICIES (1) Hours of operation: 7:30-4:30 Monday -Friday 7:30-12:30 Saturday (2) Residential customers of Bryan or College Station may utilize the Brazos Valley Landfill for the disposal of municipal solid waste generated at the billing premises without additional charge. Customers will be required to show current payment of utility bill and identification to verify the identity and residence of the landfill customer or will pay cash for their load. (3) Landfill tipping fee is $21.50 per ton. (4) All loads must be covered with a canvas, tarpaulin, or other covering that is firmly secured to the front, back, and sides to prevent blowing or spilling or will be subject to a $5.00 per ton charge with a $5.00 minimum fee. (5) All commercial and residential tranporters must provide route maps and waste information statement (see fig. 1). (6) All billed transporters must sign a statement stating that they will be held responsible for removal of any nonallowable wastes disposed of by them, and that to the best of their knowledge, they certify that they are not carrying any hazardous waste (see fig. 2). (7) Transporters will pay any applicable surcharges for the handling and storage of nonallowable wastes. (8) Nonallowable wastes are based on 30 TAC 330 as well as the proper handling procedures developed by the Brazos 12 Valley Landfill. The folowing is a list of prohibited waste which will not be allowed into the BVSWMA landfill: a) Friable and non -friable asbestos except non -friable shingles that have an asphalt laminate b) Liquid waste and waste found to contain free liquids as determined by the "paint filter test" required by the TNRCC c) Lead acid batteries d) Light ballasts and capacitors containing PCB'.s e) Compressed gas containers f.) Barrels over 5 gallons which have not had the top removed g) Hazardous chemicals h) Non -household size chemical containers that have not been triple -rinsed i) Used oil j) Used oil filters k) Class I industrial waste 1) Liquid paints m) Any special waste which does not have previous approval from the landfill operator nor a special waste form on file (see fig. 3) (n) Any refrigerator, freezer, or air conditioner that is not properly certified to be free of freon and tagged with an approved BVSWMA certificate (see fig. 4) (o) Medical waste that is not properly identified and\or treated according to Subchapter Y of the Texas 13 Natural Resource Conservation Commission Medical Waste Management Rules. (9) All transporters exiting landfill site with non - allowable wastes will be required to stop at scale house and sign waste exit forms which will be filled out by the waste inspector or waste screeners. (10) All vehicles entering the Brazos Valley Landfill with waste will be subject to screening. If driver refuses screening he/she will not be allowed to enter the landfill. Type I landfills are not designed to withstand the increased environmental demands associated with certain types of unauthorized waste. New federal and state regulations presume that hazardous waste products will be prevented from entering the municipal solid waste processing and disposal sites. Consequently, design standards and practices have been developed to reflect this exclusion. the hazardous waste products are not controlled, these design standards may be compromised. Clean-up in this case could be very costly and the ability of the community to obtain a permit to manage future facilities may also be damaged. Therefore, it is imparative that a waste screening program be implemented to greatly reduce the chances of unauthorized waste entering the landfill. The following is a summary of the waste screening program which has been implemented by the Brazos Valley Landfill. 14 If WASTE SCREENING PROGRAM (1) Screening will occur on vehicles carrying suspected unauthorized waste as would be the case if there were liquids dripping, visible fumes, heat, unusual odors coming from the vehicle, or if the customer has a history of previous offenses. (2) All vehicles entering the landfill will be subject to random screening unless the transporter earns an exemption in the future. (3) Exemptions may be earned by transporters carrying only household residential waste that is not co -mingled with commercial, industrial, or special waste. In order to apply for a screening exemption, the application must be presented by the transporter. A verbal request may be made only after route maps and a transporter report have been filled out, as well as signing a certificate which states that all unauthorized waste dumped by the customer will be taken off of the BVSWMA property by the customer. (4) Exemptions may also be earned by transporters from transfer stations which have a documented waste screening program and go through the above process. (5) Transporters carrying commercial, industrial or special waste are not elibigle for exemptions. (6) A probationary period of 6 months must pass before any transporter may earn an exemption. Every exempted 15 transporter will be eligible for inspection once every 6 months in order that we may verify the responsibility of the transporter. The 6 month probationary period starts as of January 12, 1993 for existing customers, but will start for new customers as soon as they set up an account with the BVSWMA landfill. (7) If selected fo.r screening the driver will be instructed where to unload and will be asked his/her name and the company for which they are hauling. The driver will be delayed until the inspector varifies the load contains no unauthorized waste. The driver will then be asked to sign the waste screening report (Fig. 5), of which he/she will be given a copy, and will then be allowed to leave. (8) Any driver refusing the inspection will not be allowed to unload and may permenantly lose the right to use the Brazos Valley Landfill. (9) In many instances if questionable or prohibited waste is found the inspector will contact the hauler, and/or generator of the waste to question them and to notify them of the discovered waste. If severe violations are found a representative of the TNRCC will be notified and action will be taken depending on the magnitude of the infraction. (10) Any unauthorized waste will be sent back with the hauler and a waste exit report (Fig. 6) will be filled out on all prohibited waste leaving the BVSWMA landfill. The driver will be asked to sign this form and will receive a copy. 16 (11) All reports and forms will be kept on file and a note will be placed in the customers personal file to correspond with the report or form written.

In College Station, TX. does not contain hazardous waste and accept any responsibility for removing nonallowable waste disposed of by our vehicles immediately after discharge if possible, or soon after the discovery of waste and will pay any applicable storage or handling fees assessed by the Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency. (Name) (Date) Figure 2 BVSWMA Special Waste Policy Definitions and treatment of special waste is covered under 30 TAC 330.136 & 137. The following is the BVSWMA definitions of such waste as adapted from the TNRCC regulations. Receipt of the following special wastes which does not specifically require written authorization from the TNRCC but will be subject to the handling regulations determined by the Brazos Valley Landfill: Dead animals and/or slaughterhouse waste Non -friable asbestos shingles with an asphalt laminate Empty containers which have been used for pesticides and other containers which previously contained flammable, reactive, corrosive, or petroleum chemicals provided they have been triple rinsed. Soils contaminated with gasoline with TPH less than 600 ppm. The remaining special waste transporters, which are mostly from an industrial source, must first obtain an authorization letter from the TNRCC, a waste code number, and authorization number which the generator should have, before the Brazos Valley Landfill will consider accepting the waste. This information must accompany the special waste forms which you will return to the Brazos Valley Landfill. These specials wastes include: - - Any Class II industrial nonhazardous waste -- Waste from oil, gas, and geothermal activities -- Grit trap wastes - - Any type of sludge - - Soils contaminated by petroleum products, crude oils, or chemicals other than gasoline * We do not accept any Class I industrial waste. Figure 3 The following procedure shall be followed by parties desiring to dispose of special waste in the Brazos Valley Landfill on Rock Prairie Road in College Station TX. 1. Submit a written request to the Landfill Manager describing the waste, its origin, the quantity to be disposed of, the process that generates the waste, a chemical analysis of the waste, the method of delivering the waste to the landfill, and any other significant information about the waste. 2. Submit any applicable documents from the Texas Natural Resource Conservation commission classifying the waste. 3. The chemical analysis submitted must not have been made more than 3 months prior to the submission of the written request. 4. The landfill operator will review the information submitted and determine whether or not the material will be accepted at the landfill. The basis for review will be compliance with the terms for submittal, the nature of the waste and operational impacts. If approved, the operator will provide the generator with a permit stating the acceptance and the terms for acceptance. Haulers must present a copy of the letter to the scale operator upon entering the landfill. 5. The approved waste generator should provide the landfill operator with a bond, letter of credit, or cash deposit for the duration of time that the waste will be entering the landfill to provide for any remedial actions or special provisions that may need to be provided. 6. All special waste approved for disposal will be subject to inspection and testing upon arrival at the landfill. If any sample gives cause for material to be rejected, the permit will become invalid and no further deliveries will be accepted. Further, the bond, credit, or cash deposit will be drawn upon to cover the costs of investigation and possible remediation that may be necessary due to loads already delivered.
