       By the Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation;
       and Senator Gaetz
       592-05311-10                                          20101052c1
    1                        A bill to be entitled                      
    2         An act relating to solid waste disposal; amending s.
    3         403.708, F.S.; authorizing the disposal of yard trash
    4         at a Class I landfill if the landfill has a system for
    5         collecting landfill gas and arranging for the reuse of
    6         the gas and has obtained a minor permit modification;
    7         providing an effective date.
    9  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   11         Section 1. Paragraph (c) of subsection (12) of section
   12  403.708, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
   13         403.708 Prohibition; penalty.—
   14         (12) A person who knows or should know of the nature of the
   15  following types of solid waste may not dispose of such solid
   16  waste in landfills:
   17         (c) Yard trash in lined landfills classified by department
   18  rule as Class I landfills, unless the landfill uses an active
   19  gas-collection system to collect landfill gas generated at the
   20  disposal facility and provides or arranges for a beneficial
   21  reuse of the gas. A qualifying permitted Class I landfill must
   22  obtain a minor permit modification to its operating permit which
   23  describes the beneficial use being made of the landfill gas and
   24  modifies the facility’s operation plan before receiving yard
   25  trash as authorized by this paragraph. The permittee must
   26  certify that gas collection and beneficial use will continue
   27  after closure of the disposal unit that is accepting yard trash.
   28  Yard trash that is source separated from solid waste may be
   29  accepted at a solid waste disposal area where separate yard
   30  trash composting facilities are provided and maintained. The
   31  department recognizes that incidental amounts of yard trash may
   32  be disposed of in Class I landfills. In any enforcement action
   33  taken pursuant to this paragraph, the department shall consider
   34  the difficulty of removing incidental amounts of yard trash from
   35  a mixed solid waste stream.
   36         Section 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2010.
