Does my Form 43 or Form U waste need to be scheduled?
- Yes. All Form 43 and Form U waste must be scheduled before it comes into the plant. You can contact the sludge receiver at extension 227 to see what is available.
What is the difference between a package plant and a Form 43 waste?
- A package plant is a domestic treatment plant with a design capacity less than or equal to one million gallons per day, with sludge less than or equal to 2% solids. Package plant waste is discarded in the primary receiving area. Form 43 waste is sludge generated from a municipal wastewater treatment plant with a design capacity greater than one million gallons per day. Form 43 waste is discharged in the sludge offloading area, directly into the sludge holding tanks.
