FAQ Categories / Tax: Hazardous Waste Disposal

State fees on hazardous waste disposed of in Alabama are based on the toxicity of the waste received for disposal.  The fee is paid to the Department of Revenue by filing a monthly report that is due by the 30th of the month for the previous month’s activity.  The fees for an Alabama facility are as follows:

  • $5.50 per ton on hazardous waste identified or listed under Section 3001 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 as amended (RCRA), and on PCB wastes. 
  • $5.50 per ton on all other waste not referenced above.
  • An additional $1 per ton is imposed on all waste received for disposal.  Additional fees are also collected by the county in which the hazardous waste commercial site is located.
