OAR 345-050-0070
Alternate Site

A person shall not locate a waste disposal facility at a site unless there is no available alternative site for disposal of such wastes:


A site outside of Oregon is not available unless appropriate local, state and federal regulatory agencies have issued the necessary permits to allow present commercial use of the site for disposal of wastes of the nature produced by the applicant.


A site is not available unless the Council finds it to be the best site reasonably available for the disposal of such wastes. In making this finding, the Council may rely on a report of possible sites provided by the applicant. If the Director or the Council finds the list to be deficient, the Council may consider additional sites. The applicant may either perform the additional site evaluations itself or elect to have the Director perform them. The applicant shall reimburse the Director for all costs of site evaluations done by the Director.
