To obtain or revise a solid waste facility permit, each solid waste facility operator must file with the LEA/EA a Report of Facility Information (RFI) or other report or plan as required by regulation. A complete and correct permit application submittal is required to be supported by a new, revised, or amended RFI.
An RFI is an operations and design plan that describes the facility and how it will comply with State Minimum Standards. RFIs are required to be kept current. In certain cases, an RFI Amendment can be approved without revising the permit.
While the notification tier does not include a requirement for an RFI, some notification sites and operations require submittal of an "operation plan".
