Effective 05/04/2016 to 03/15/2018

Regulation Authority :

Chapters 2-1, 2-22, 2-23, 5-51, 23-18.8, 23-18.9, 23-19, 23-19.1, 23-23, 23-63, 37-15.1, 42-17.1, 42-17.6, 44-27, and 46-12

Purpose and Reason :

To encourage and simplify composting requirements for small-scale composting operations and medium-scale composting facilities. Our second goal is to create Anaerobic Digestion Rules so as to encourage the development of these types of facilities since the Refuse Disposal Act was revised to include a ban on disposing food residuals for large generators (greater than 104 tons per year). The Food Waste Ban (RIGL Section 23-18.9-17) goes into effect on January 1, 2016. Pursuant to public comment, the Regulation was changed to clarify renewal frequency.
