Solid Waste Vehicle Health Permitting

What is the process?

Step 2: Pay Health Permit Fee

The permit fee is due with the application. Please refer to the Environmental Health Permit Fee Schedule for more information.

Step 3: Schedule Inspection

Contact us if you have any questions or to schedule an inspection of your Solid Waste Disposal Vehicle prior to placing vehicle into use

Step 4: Receive Inspector Approval to Begin Vehicle Use

It is unlawful to begin operation of a new Solid Waste Disposal Vehicle without first receiving approval from an inspector and a valid Health Permit to Operate.

Upon completion of an initial inspection, the inspector will affix a health permit sticker to the vehicle indicating approval to begin use of the vehicle. A paper Health Permit to Operate will be mailed within 2-4 weeks after payment has been made and approval to use the vehicle has been granted by the inspector.
