SCS Engineers Technical Bulletin: Summary of EPA Proposed NSPS and EG Rules for Landfills

August 30, 2015

Sign-Alert-iconThe Technical Bulletin is a synopsis of the NSPS rule supplement and the draft EG rule intended by the EPA to strengthen the previously published rule on July 17, 2014, and earlier proposals. The rules frame the requirements and responsibilities created for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills and the Waste and Recycling Industry.

The EPA has provided a 60-day time period from the publication date of August 27, 2015, for industry responses to the draft rules. Responding is critical to properly frame EPA’s rulemaking process; the EPA may add provisions to the final version of the rule based on information received during the comment period.

The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) and the National Waste and Recycling Association (NW&RA) are reviewing the NSPS and EG rule in detail and will be commenting within the prescribed 60-day window.

This SCS Engineers Technical Bulletin, providing a more detailed summary of the rules, is available on the SCS website by clicking here. Share the link or this blog to help speed the efforts to gather information for the Waste and Recycling Industry response.
