Recyclers, Reuse, and Composting Operations
Beneficial Use Determination (BUD) Approvals
Recycling/reuse operations and composting operations must obtain written approval from the Department. The process and ultimate approval are referred to as a Beneficial Use Determination (BUD). It is typically for recyclers handling materials that are segregated. More complex operations handling mixed wastes require a Resource Recovery Facility Permit.
