Description

Permit fees for solid waste facilities.  Establishes the same fee structure for sanitary landfills, noncaptive industrial landfills, and construction and demolition debris landfills. All of these types of facilities will be required to pay an annual fee of $0.115 per ton of waste deposited in their facility. Currently, noncaptive industrial landfills pay an annual fee of $8,000 and construction and demolition debris landfills pay $4,000 annually, while the fee schedule for sanitary landfills is based on the annual tonnage of waste deposited in the landfill. Incinerators and energy recovery facilities will be assessed an annual fee of $0.06 per ton. The fees will be adjusted annually based on the Consumer Price Index. The annual fee has been increased for other types of facilities such as composting, regulated medical waste, transfer stations, etc. The bill also requires the Department of Environmental Quality to develop and implement policies and procedures to maximize efficiency and eliminate unnecessary delays in processing waste permit applications and permit amendments.
