Solid Waste Compliance and Enforcement

Compliance Reviews

The Compliance Group is charged with upholding the requirements in the Solid Waste Policy and Management Act, which states that at least once every five years, the Department shall review the environmental compliance history of each permitted facility. This consists of a thorough file review, a facility inspection, addressing any outstanding issues that are compliance related and addressing any additional items that the Department feels would be in the best interest of the health of the people and the environment of SC.

This group also handles any consistent problems with a facility as referred by the District Solid Waste Inspectors. If a facility fails to address any outstanding issues noted during regular inspections, a District Inspector may then refer the problem to this group to handle.
