Processing construction and demolition debris (C&DD) conserves landfill space, reduces the environmental impact of producing new materials, creates jobs, and can reduce overall building project expenses through avoided purchase/disposal costs.
A C&DD processing facility is a site, location, tract of land, installation, or building that is used or intended to be used for processing, transferring, or recycling C&DD that was generated off the premises of the facility.
The standalone C&DD processing facility rules became effective on April 18, 2022. A “standalone” C&DD processing facility is a C&DD processing facility that is not located wholly within the facility boundary of a licensed C&DD facility. Please see the DMWM Effective Rules page to view the rules. The owner or operator of a standalone C&DD processing facility must obtain a permit-to-install (PTI) and a license. The owner or operator of a standalone C&DD processing facility will need to obtain a PTI before establishing the processing facility and obtain a license before operating. The application forms can be found on the Standalone C&DD Processing Facility Permitting and Licensing page.
The C&DD co-located processing facility rules became effective on July 4, 2022. A C&DD co-located processing facility is a processing facility that is located wholly within the facility boundary of a licensed C&DD facility, as that boundary is identified in the effective C&DD facility license. The owner or operator of a C&DD co-located processing facility must obtain a license before operating. The facility and co-located processing facility license application forms can be found on the C&DD Facility Licensing page.
Other Ohio EPA programs, such as the Division of Air Pollution Control or Division of Surface Water, may also regulate activities at C&DD Processing Facilities.
A C&DD Processing Facility needs to conduct its activities and operations in compliance with all applicable Federal, State, and local laws, regulations, ordinances, and requirements. The facility must have all applicable Federal, State, and local permits, licenses, registrations, and certifications; those permits, licenses, registrations, and certifications need to be valid, not revoked, and not suspended. It should operate in a manner that avoids the creation of any nuisance to the surrounding community.
If you are establishing or modifying a C&DD Processing Facility in Ohio, it is important to determine what environmental permits/licenses you need. In addition to a license for all C&DD processing facilities, standalone processing facilities need to obtain a permit-to-install. Additionally, you may need a permit from the Division of Air Pollution Control (DAPC) for any air pollution sources and you may need to obtain coverage under the NDPES program from the Division of Surface Water (DSW).
