Solid Waste Financial Assurance

When demonstrating proof of financial assurance, owners or operators can choose from a list of approved financial mechanisms that best meet their individual needs. The dollar amount of financial assurance required is tied to the current department approved closure cost estimate. To support compliance with Solid Waste financial assurance requirements, we provide assistance to facility owners and operators, their consultants and provider companies.
