SB 539 - Currently, a hazardous waste facility permit is not required for a resource recovery facility certified by the Department of Natural Resources to use hazardous waste as a supplement or a substitute for non-waste material and that the sole purpose of such a facility is to manufacture a product rather than treatment or disposal of hazardous waste. Furthermore, when a facility is engaged in both resource recovery and hazardous waste treatment or disposal and a portion of such a facility is engaged in hazardous waste resource recovery, a permit is not required when an owner of such a facility can demonstrate to the Department's satisfaction and the Department finds that such portion is not intended and is not used for hazardous waste treatment or disposal. This act repeals these provisions.
Under the current law, before constructing, altering or operating a resource recovery facility in this state, an application for certification must be filed. This act repeals the application for certification filing requirement.
This act is identical to HB 480 (2023).
