Transportation of Hazardous Material
No permit is required to transport hazardous material within the state.
Transportation of Hazardous Waste
Transporters of hazardous waste and/or used oil within Alabama are required to obtain a permit from ADEM.
The rules for ADEM's Hazardous Waste Program are found within Division 14 of the ADEM Administrative Code, in accordance with Alabama Code 22-30-1 to 22-30-24. Division 14 regulations contain standards applicable to generators and transporters of hazardous waste, and facilities that treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste. Division 14 also sets forth the permitting requirements for treatment, storage, and disposal facilities; transporters of hazardous waste; and corrective action at sites where hazardous wastes may have been disposed of without a permit. These rules are — at a minimum — as strict as the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations administered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)
Businesses transporting, storing, distributing, and/or selling LPG within Alabama are required to obtain a permit from the Alabama Liquefied Petroleum Gas Board.
Fees are required for several waste permits. To apply for a permit, the applicant must prepare a completed application package in accordance with the regulations requiring the permit. Failure to submit a completed application may cause a delay in the review of the application or result in the return of the application. Each permit application requires submission of an application fee as well. The applicant should review ADEM Administrative Code 335-1-6-.07 for the appropriate fee schedule regarding the requested permit. Failure to submit the appropriate fee will result in delayed review of the application until the fees are received.
