Special Considerations on Eligible Costs For Equipment

Equipment purchases for solid waste disposal facilities with state assistance shall be given special consideration. Intended equipment purchases shall be itemized in the grant-loan application and the applicability of each individual piece of equipment to the project or facility clearly outlined for Department review. The following criteria shall be applied by the Department to equipment purchases:


Equipment purchases shall be limited to initial purchases only and eligibility restricted to only that equipment necessary to sustain the performance of the project or facility.


Equipment required, whether for processing or landfilling of solid wastes, that has an expected useful or mechanical life less than the anticipated life of the project will require a sinking fund or equivalent replacement fund in the submitted project budget for such equipment replacement throughout the life of the project.


All major equipment purchases shall be done through open bidding on specified types or equivalents of equipment. Specifications on major equipment needs shall be reviewed by the Department prior to purchase.


Equipment purchases less than $1,500 (small tools, office equipment, etc.) do not require specifications but must be reviewed and approved by the Department.
