Administration Interpretation for Special Wastes
To clarify the application of the Waiver Fee specifically to friable and non-friable asbestos, BOTH friable and non-friable asbestos are deemed categorized as Unacceptable Wastes and therefore, the Waiver Fee shall not apply. The categorizing of friable and non-friable asbestos as a “Special Handling Wastes” or “Special Wastes” shall be viewed by SWACO as inapplicable under the “Special Handling Wastes” or “Special Wastes” category.
The SWACO General Grants are designed to assist projects that further the SWACO mission of reducing waste, increasing recycling and treating solid waste as a resource. Local governments including cities, townships, villages and other governmental organizations, public and private schools and school districts and 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations can apply for the SWACO General Grants Program.
