Description of Petition:

Petition 2002-12 (LCB R105-02) is a permanent amendment to NAC 444.570 to 444.7499, the solid waste disposal regulations. The amendment adds a requirement to conduct periodic topographic surveys and to calculate remaining capacity of landfills. The amendment reduces minimum buffer zone requirements for composting facilities and defines the type of composting facilities needing to engage the permitting process. The regulations amends the permitting process to allow the inclusion of conditions on permits following the public review and comment period. The regulation provides for more flexibility by allowing remote communities to store waste for more than one week when there is no nuisance or threat to the environment or public health. The minimum design standard for public waste bin facilities for remote communities is increased to allow greater storage. The regulation provides that open burning be allowed for yard waste and clean wood waste in remote communities where no practical alternative exists to dispose of the waste stream. The air pollution control authority has to approve the open burning. Amended is NAC 444.607, 444.628, 444.640, 444.6405, 444.6425, 444.662, 444.66647, 444.667, 444.702, and 444.728.
