Description

Solid waste management facility; permit for landfill with capacity of more than 35 million tons. Prohibits the Virginia Waste Management Board from issuing (i) a permit for a new solid waste management facility or (ii) an amendment to a permit allowing the expansion of a facility or an increase in capacity, where such permit or amendment is likely to result in the creation of a landfill whose capacity exceeds 35 million tons. For the Board to issue such a permit or amendment, the bill requires the Director of the Department of Environmental Quality to determine that the amount of capacity in excess of 35 million tons will serve a public interest that outweighs any additional harms to human health and safety and the environment caused by such capacity in excess of 35 million tons.
