Notes Regarding Waste Transportation
- New, is the requirement that if you are transporting TENORM, typically oilfield related, or waste contaminated with TENORM, such as filter socks, a TENORM license which is issued by the Radiation Control Program is required. This license will be required before issuance of a Transporters permit by the Division of Waste Management.
- A permit is required for all transportation of solid waste collected from or delivering to a destination within North Dakota.
- Oil field related activity: wastes such as brine, drilling mud, invert mud, tank-bottom sediment, pipe scale; flyash used for pit reclamation are all considered solid waste and require a transporters permit if transported.
Additionally, please note that under the North Dakota Association of Oil and Gas Counties, when using a county road in any of the effected counties, if you are over weight, or over dimension, or if your vehicle is a Crane, Work-over rig, or a Construction vehicle, you must have their permit.
- A permit is not required for pass-through transportation, that is, no pick-up or drop-off within North Dakota.
- There is an annual permit fee of $25.00 which is due on July 31 of every year. The Division sends out a reminder letter. Failure to submit the annual permit fee is a violation of the permit conditions and is cause for termination of a permit.
