About Solid Waste Permits
Guam's Solid Waste Management Act (10 GCA Chapter 51) states "The Administrator is authorized and directed to issue permits for all collectors, operators and solid waste management facilities, their design, operation, maintenance, substantial alteration, modification or enlargement." Section 51102(45) defines solid waste management facilities as "any facility, or any machinery, equipment, vehicles, structures or any part of accessories thereof installed or acquired for the primary purpose of: collection, transportation, storage, recycling, processing or disposal of solid waste."
Pursuant to the Solid Waste Management Act, Guam EPA's Solid Waste Management Program has established permit programs for the collection, transfer, storage, or processing of solid waste. Additional permit programs regulate hardfill and landfill facilities. For a detailed explanantion of Guam EPA's Solid Waste Permits, consult the Environmental Permit Guidebook.
