(A) A person holding a solid waste facility license or infectious waste treatment facility license or construction and demolition debris facility license shall not transfer said license to another person unless the license holder notifies the board of health and the director in writing of the identity of the transferee and of the transferee's assumption of his obligations, at least one hundred twenty days prior to the proposed date of the transfer. The license transfer shall not be effective until approved by the director and by the board of health if the board is the license-issuing authority. The license holder shall publish prominent notice of the request for transfer of the license in the paper of general circulation in the county in which the facility is located at four-week intervals.

(B) Not later than one hundred twenty days after receiving such notice, the board of health or the director shall approve or disapprove the transfer.

The board of health or the director shall promptly notify the transferee and the transferor of his or its decision in writing and shall state the reasons for his or its conclusions.

(C) A solid waste facility license or infectious waste treatment facility license or construction and demolition debris facility license shall not be transferred from one facility to another.
