Control of gas emission from certain landfills. 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. The bill (i) requires any application for the expansion of any such landfill to include certification from the governing body of the locality where the facility is located that the expansion of the facility has been approved and (ii) prohibits the Department of Environmental Quality from issuing a Certificate to Operate for any expansion of an area within such facility before the Department receives such certification of approval, if the sanitary landfill has not received such Certificate to Operate by January 1, 2016.
