TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL, RELATING TO SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 3113, PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 1, CHAPTER 23, TITLE 1 OF THE 1976 CODE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the Department of Health and Environmental Control, relating to Solid Waste Management, designated as Regulation Document Number 3113, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are approved.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
This proposed amendment of R.61-107 adds a new section (R.61-107.19) that addresses all solid waste landfills and structural fill activity and repeals the four existing sections (R. 61-107.11, R.61-107.13, R.61-107.16, and R.61-107.258) that address solid waste landfills. It updates, streamlines and clarifies requirements addressing disposal of solid waste, provides better protection for the environment and public health, facilitates public notification and input in the early stages of the permitting process and resolves issues prior to large financial expenditures. The new proposed section provides a viable mechanism for structural fill activities using a suitable waste stream, thus helping alleviate open dumping. It will broaden disposal options by changing the way proper disposal is determined by focusing on the waste stream's chemical and physical properties instead of the source of generation.
