Compliance and Permitting Section

In addition, CAPS staff perform periodic inspections of Delaware facilities for compliance with issued permits and other regulatory requirements. Compliance inspectors are on site daily at major solid waste facilities to ensure they are run according to Delaware regulations.

Permit Applications

Delaware’s Regulations Governing Solid Waste (7 DE Admin. Code 1301) require permits to operate solid waste facilities within the State of Delaware. A Delaware Environmental Application Background Statement must be completed and submitted with the permit application.

Application Forms and Checklists
