Hazardous Waste Fees
The Santa Clara Fire Department Hazardous Materials Division assesses fees to fund the Division and the programs it is mandated to implement. Companies that generate and/or treat hazardous waste are billed annually based on the highest tier of treatment and the amount of hazardous waste generated. The State of California also assesses a surcharge on business that are part of the Unified Program. The Santa Clara Fire Department collects the surcharges and forwards them to the State. These fees are billed with the annual business tax according to this Hazardous Waste Schedule.

Fire Permit Fee Schedule
Companies are also billed according to the amount and types of hazardous materials stored and used on site. This fee schedule is available on the Fire Permit Fee Schedule (Municipal Fire Code Exhibit A) (PDF) under "(3) Fire Permit Fees: (Renewable Annually)."

Plan checking and other one-time fees are also available for review on this website under Permit Center & Licenses/Fire Permits/ Fire Permit Fee Schedule (Municipal Fire Code Exhibit A) (PDF) under "(2) Plan Checking and Special Inspection Fees."
