Sunday, January 6, 2019

 A proposed Federal Rule includes revisions to the criteria for MSW landfills that support advances in effective liquids management. According to the IDNR, the proposed rulemaking to 40 CFR part 258 creates an additional classification for bioreactor or wet landfill units that operate at an increased moisture content. 

The EPA is requesting feedback. Please review the proposed rule changes and submit formal comments by March 26, 2019. You can provide feedback directly on the website.

The Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM), “Revisions to the Criteria for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills To Address Advances in Liquids Management,” was published in the Federal Register on Dec. 26, 2018. 

Additional information regarding the ANPRM is on the EPA website.
