Landfill Permitting

Edinburg MSW 2302 -  Type 4 Permit

A Type IV landfill only accepts brush, construction or demolition (C&D) waste, and other similar nonputrescible waste. In 2016, there were 22 Type IV facilities, accounting for 11% of all active landfills, almost 10% of the total waste disposed, and 4% of the total statewide remaining capacity. These landfills were not distributed evenly across the state; approximately 64% were in the Houston-Galveston Area Council’s region (COG-16).


There are no current permit applications or modifications pending review by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
