Subchapter 001 : GENERAL PROVISIONS

(Cite as: 10 V.S.A. § 6605g)
  • § 6605g. Incineration emissions

    (a) Findings. The General Assembly finds that given the regional nature of weather patterns, the incineration of solid waste, whether from incinerators located inside the State or outside its borders, causes negative effects on the health and welfare of the people of the State, and on the State's natural resources. Accordingly, it is in the public interest to require the use of the best required technology in incinerators, wherever located, if they are to receive solid waste from the State of Vermont, pursuant to new contracts or contract renewal for the disposal of solid waste.

    (b) Best required technology requirement. To the extent consistent with federal law, no person shall enter a new contract or renew an existing contract for the incineration of solid waste produced within the State's borders, at an incinerator, regardless of location, that fails to use the best technology currently required by federal law of any solid waste incinerator in the country, in reducing hazardous emissions from the incinerator. (Added 1997, No. 151 (Adj. Sess.), § 5.)
