Bill requires landfills to install gas collection control systems

February 2, 2016


HB 1358 (Fariss) requires all active sanitary landfills that hold a Title V operating permit issued by the Virginia Air Pollution Control Board and are located within one-half mile of any residence or residentially zoned property to install a landfill gas collection and control system by July 1, 2018, whether or not the Title V operating permit requires such installation.

VACo opposes this bill as an unfunded mandate.
