|RULE §312.143||Transporters--Delivery Requirement and Full Pump-out Requirement|
Transporters shall deposit wastes at a facility designated by or acceptable to the generator where the owner or operator of the facility agrees to receive the wastes and the (Texas) facility has written authorization by permit or registration issued by the executive director to receive wastes. In this regard, "authorization by the executive director" means the executive director or commission has given its approval by rule, permit, letter, or other document that identifies the individual facility or class of facilities to receive that specific waste or class of waste. Each grit trap and grease trap pumped shall be fully evacuated unless the trap volume is greater than the tank capacity on the vacuum truck in which case the transporter shall arrange for additional transportation capacity so that the trap is fully evacuated within a 24-hour period. If a transporter cannot fully evacuate a grit trap or grease trap because the trap volume is greater than the tank capacity on the truck, the transporter shall arrange for additional transportation capacity to ensure the trap is fully evacuated within the 24-hour period following the transporter's inability to fully evacuate the trap.
