Import / Export Authorizations
 

Part 115 requires waste import/export authorizations.

This means waste must be approved by both the county sending the waste and the county receiving the waste. This is called reciprocal authorization. The county sending the waste is the exporter and the county receiving the waste is the importer.

            Ex. County A sends waste to County B

                        County A exports to County B

                        County B imports from County A

Import/Export Report 

Please note that the Report should be used for general purposes ONLY.  While it is expected that the Report is correct in its entirety, to determine official authorizations, please see the applicable Plans by either contacting the County DPA or by contacting the EGLE County Contact.
