For example, an applicant for a 20-year permit for landfill operation would pay a fee of $40,000 ($10,000 for the first 5 years, plus 20% of $10,000 for each of the additional 15 years).

    484(14) Applicants for permits of more than five years may elect to pay the entire permit fee at the time of application. Applicants may also elect to pay the fee listed above at the time of application, and make payments of 100% of the fee listed above every five years thereafter for the duration of the permit. For example, an applicant for a 20-year permit for landfill operation could pay $40,000 at the time of application, or could pay $10,000 at the time of application, plus $10,000 every five years thereafter until the time for permit renewal. Any future amendments to this section that result in increases in permit fees will not increase the fees for applicants until a renewal permit or permit modification is applied for. Failure to make such subsequent payments in a timely manner will be considered a violation of this rule and may subject the applicant to enforcement action by the Department.
