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

For all municipal sludges, analytical results as listed in PADEP chapter 271.914 (b)(1) and (3), shall be provided once per year, and approved by the MAWSA Administrator prior to the first hauling event of the calendar year. Additionally, a description and the source of the sludge shall be provided.”

Haulers who transport Standard Wastes must complete a 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.

        MAWSA does NOT currently accept grease trap waste or landfill leachate.

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.
