(A) No person shall operate or maintain a solid waste facility, a construction and demolition debris facility, or a construction and demolition debris processing facility without a separate license for each facility as required by Chapter 3714. or 3734. of the Revised Code and the rules adopted thereunder. The requirement to obtain a separate license does not apply to a construction and demolition debris facility and a co-located processing facility operating or proposing to operate under a single license.
