The Indiana Statute specifies a minimum permit application fee and annual operating fee for solid and hazardous waste facilities. The Environmental Rules Board may adopt additional fee according to IC 13-16.

Annual Operation Fees

Permitted and registered solid and hazardous waste facilities and hazardous waste generators owe annual operation fees. Solid waste and waste tire invoices are mailed out by January 15 every year based on the permit/registration status on January 1, or the generator status during the previous year. Hazardous waste invoices are generated on June 15 based on reports due March 1. Fees are due within 30 days of mailing, with a 10 percent late fee if they are still unpaid more than 30 days after the due date. Installment plans are available upon written request.

Solid Waste
  • Landfill or Incinerator >500 tons per day (TPD) = $35,000
  • Landfill or Incinerator 250-499 TPD = $15,000
  • Landfill or Incinerator 100-249 TPD = $7,000
  • Landfill or Incinerator <100 TPD = $2,000
  • Construction/Demolition Site = $1,500
  • Restricted Waste Site 1 = $35,000
  • Restricted Waste Site 2 = $25,000
  • Restricted Waste Site 3 = $10,000
  • Groundwater Compliance Sampling (for land disposal facilities) = $250 per well
  • Transfer Station = $2,000
  • Processing Facility = $2,000
  • Infectious Waste Incinerator >7 TPD = $5,000
  • Waste Tire Storage Facility = $500
  • Waste Tire Transporter = $25
Hazardous Waste (HW)
  • HW Landfill = $37,500
  • Groundwater Compliance Sampling (for active HW landfills) = $1,000 per well
  • HW Incinerator = $10,000 per unit
  • HW Storage = $2,500
  • HW Treatment = $10,000
  • HW Generator = $1,565
  • HW Post Closure Activity = $1,500

Disposal Fees

Solid waste disposal facilities, like landfills and incinerators, owe fees based on the amount of waste they dispose. It is generally $0.60 per ton for landfills and $0.55 for incinerators. These fees are due by the 15th of the month following each calendar quarter. Hazardous waste disposal facilities, like landfills and underground injection sites, owe a higher fee of $11.50 per ton, which is due by March 1 each year. However, the maximum amount owed for disposal by underground injection is $25,000. All disposal fees incur a 10 percent late charge if not paid on time.

  • Hazardous Waste Disposal Fee (State Form 46244 on IDEM Forms page)

New Application, Modification, and Renewal Fees

Solid and hazardous waste facilities and waste tire operations owe application fees when they first apply for a permit or registration, and then for any permit modification and renewal of the permit. This fee must be paid along with the application. The application is not considered as received until the fee is received. The application fee is based on the type of permit. There are no application fees for solid waste registrations, such as compost facility and biomass facility.
