Permits for Salvage, Recycling, Compost and
Liquid Waste Hauling Operations

To operate a salvaging, recycling or composting business operation you must obtain a permit from the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department. The property where any commercial salvaging, recycling or composting operations occur must be properly zoned for such activity.

To transport any liquid wastes in Lancaster County or dispose liquid wastes at Lincoln’s treatment facilities, you must obtain a permit from the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department. Your truck must pass an inspection administered by the Health Department and the facility where the truck is stored must be appropriately zoned and secure.

You should visit with the Plan Review staff at Building and Safety (402-441-7882) to make sure any property you might be considering for operating a salvaging, liquid waste hauling, recycling or composting operation is properly zoned and doesn’t also need to have a Special Use Permit.
