3745-555-10 General obligations for owners, operators, and applicants.

(A) An applicant for an authorizing document, and an owner or operator that has obtained a permit to install or a license for a solid waste transfer facility pursuant to rules adopted under section 3734.02 of the Revised Code, shall comply with this chapter. The owner or operator of a transfer facility that accepts exclusively source-separated yard waste for transfer shall comply with this chapter. Compliance with this chapter does not relieve any person from the obligation to comply with any applicable statute, rule, or authorizing document.

[Comment: The owner or operator of a transfer facility who has established a solid waste transfer facility by obtaining a license to operate a solid waste transfer facility prior to May 31, 1991 (the effective date of rules adopted under division (A) of section 3734.02 and under division (D) of section 3734.12 of the Revised Code which require that no person shall establish a new solid waste transfer facility without first submitting an application for a permit) and did not modify the transfer facility after that date, is not required to obtain a permit to install, unless such owner or operator modifies the existing solid waste transfer facility.]

(B) No person shall operate a solid waste transfer facility without first obtaining a license to operate the solid waste transfer facility issued by the licensing authority. This requirement does not apply to a transfer facility that accepts exclusively source-separated yard waste for transfer.

(D) No person shall establish a new solid waste transfer facility or modify an existing solid waste transfer facility without first obtaining a permit to install issued in accordance with rule 3745-555-300 of the Administrative Code. This requirement does not apply to a transfer facility that accepts exclusively source-separated yard wastes for transfer.

(E) An owner or operator of a solid waste transfer facility shall maintain compliance with all permits to install, permit modifications and permit alterations, licenses, and orders issued in accordance with Chapter 3734. of the Revised Code and rules adopted thereunder.

(F) Except as provided in rule 3745-512-51 of the Administrative Code (alterations during construction), no person shall alter a solid waste transfer facility without first obtaining concurrence from Ohio EPA for an alteration to the permit to install for the solid waste transfer facility.

(G) If the director orders the owner or operator to submit updated engineering detail plans, specifications, and information in accordance with division (A)(5) of section 3734.05 of the Revised Code, and no permit to install was issued pursuant to Chapter 3734. of the Revised Code, the owner or operator shall submit an application for a permit to install in accordance with rule 3745-555-300 of the Administrative Code as though the solid waste transfer facility were being established as a new transfer facility.

(H) The permit to install shall remain in effect until the director has received, and approved in writing, certification that all required final closure activities were completed, unless the permit has expired in accordance with rule 3745-500-330 of the Administrative Code or was revoked in accordance with rule 3745-500-350 of the Administrative Code.
