Hauled Waste


The wastewater treatment plant can receive both Standard and Non-Standard Waste based on an approved permit. Descriptions of Standard and Non-Standard Waste:


Standard waste is described as “residential, commercial, and municipal” and includes; sludge, holding tank, portable toilet, and municipal sludge1.

Haulers who only transport Standard Wastes only need to complete a Hauler Permit Application.


Non-standard waste is described as “industrial” and includes; landfill leachate, wash waters and condensates, industrial sludge and wastewater, miscellaneous waste, and industrial holding tank.  Any such waste streams shall provide analytical results once per year.

Haulers who transport Non-Standard Wastes will need to have each Generator complete a Non-Standard Permit, which has a $250 permit fee per generated waste stream.

Non-Standard Waste Haulers will need to complete a Hauler Permit Application in addition to the completion of any Non-Standard Permits.


All parties who wish to discharge liquid hauled waste to MAWSA must contact the  MAWSA Wastewater Treatment Plant at (717) 665-2737. All haulers are expected to abide by the Liquid Hauled Waste Policy, Hauled Waste Permit and a manifest form is required for each discharge showing the name, address, and telephone number for the source of the wastewater.
