Information on the registration process and what documentation you will need to register as a sludge transporter.

There is a $10 fee for stickers for each vehicle registered due at the time of registration. We also charge an annual fee ranging from $100-$500 based on the amount of waste hauled during the reporting period of June 1 to May 31 of each year.

If you intend to transport sludge wastes into Texas, you must also submit:

  • A copy of your written authorization to transport sludge wastes in the state where you pick up that waste. (Check with that state's authorities to find out what authorizations are required.)
  • A written statement from the receiver stating they will accept these out-of- state wastes.
