(b) The application fees for permits to operate solid waste facilities shall be as follows:

(1) Initial permit — $10,000;

(3) Modification permit for substantial alterations — $1,000.

(c) The payment under subsection (b)(1) of this section shall be waived if already paid pursuant to § 8-1053(b)(2).

(d) If the Mayor denies the issuance of a solid waste facility permit pursuant to § 8-1053(e), $9,000 shall be refunded to the applicant.

(f) Any license issued pursuant to this section shall be issued as an Environmental Materials endorsement to a basic business license under the basic business license system as set forth in subchapter I-A of Chapter 28 of Title 47.
