Interim Final Technical Guidance

   DEP ID: 254-2412-002. Title: Act 90 Waste Transportation Safety Program Placarded Authorizations. Description: This guidance document establishes procedures for owners of demonstrator vehicles, vehicles under rental/short-term leases, vehicles utilized for temporary storage and intermodal transportation vehicles to obtain written authorization from the Department under 27 Pa.C.S. §§ 6201--6209 (relating to Transportation Safety Act) (act). Under the act, it is unlawful for the owner of a public or private waste transportation vehicle to operate such a vehicle without obtaining written authorization from the Department, including obtaining authorization stickers for each truck, truck tractor and waste trailer. Because of certain business practices, it may be impractical, improbable or even impossible, for owners or operators of the previously identified vehicles to obtain and possess a separate authorization for each vehicle that may be used to transport waste. The procedures outlined in this guidance establish a process whereby owners of these vehicles can apply to the Department for a placarded authorization that can be permanently affixed to a movable placard, thereby enabling the owner to use the vehicle in conformance with the act. Written Comments: Interested persons may submit written comments on interim final technical guidance document No. 254-2412-002 by January 10, 2005. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted. The Department will accept comments submitted by e-mail. A return name and address must be included in each e-mail transmission. Written comments should be submitted to William F. Pounds, Chief, Division of Municipal and Residual Waste, Bureau of Land Recycling and Waste Management, P. O. Box 8472, Harrisburg, PA 17105-8472, wpounds@ Questions regarding the interim final technical guidance document should be directed to William Pounds at (717) 787-7564 or Interim Final Effective Date: December 11, 2004.
