North Carolina Division of Waste Management File Room Access Procedures
The Division of Waste Management has four sections. The section names are: Hazardous Waste, Solid Waste, Superfund and Underground Storage Tank (UST). The mailing address for the Hazardous Waste, Solid Waste Superfund and UST file rooms is Mail Service Center #1646, Raleigh, NC 27699-1646. The street address is 217 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC.
The sections maintain separate file rooms to assist the public with requests to review files. Due to resource limitations, however, we are unable to provide file search and copy services. You may wish to hire someone to perform your search. A number of firms listed in your telephone directory’s yellow pages provide this service.
If you choose to use a copying service and/or file search firm, you must send a letter addressed to the appropriate section’s file room. The letter should include your name, firm name, address, telephone number and the name of the company whose file you want reviewed. All fees for services rendered by the copying and/or file search firm, including payment for file copies, must be handled directly between you and the firm.
Each file room can handle only one appointment at a time, so you should schedule your appointment with the appropriate file room soon in order to gather the information within the time frame you desire. If you will be visiting 401 Oberlin Road, you will need to get a visitor’s pass and a parking pass from the receptionist in Suite 150. The Parker-Lincoln Building does not require visitor or parking passes.
The reviewer should reserve a specific block of time when the appointment is made. If you need to access more than one section’s file room, you will need to make a separate appointment for each file room.
Specific files must be identified and requested at the time an appointment is made. If you need to know the approximate thickness of these files for copying purposes, please ask the file room staff to check for you.
Anyone arriving at the file rooms without an appointment will be allowed to view files to the extent that time, space and staff supervision are available.
