COUNTIES AND COUNTY LAW
REGIONAL SOLID WASTE OR DOMESTIC SEPTAGE DISPOSAL DISTRICTS
31-4917. Operation of landfills, domestic septage receiving stations or resource recovery facilities by participating counties prohibited. No participating county shall acquire, construct or operate, or continue the operation of, any landfill site, domestic septage receiving stations, or any facility for the recovery of resources or the disposal of solid waste or domestic septage, without the consent of the district board, after a solid waste disposal, or domestic septage receiving station, or resource recovery facility of a district is operational. The foregoing restriction shall not apply to a resource recovery facility which was operational at, or which becomes operational within six (6) months after, the date of establishment of the district. The district board may establish exceptions, consistent with applicable federal and state laws and regulations, to this requirement. The commissioners of the participating counties shall take all actions necessary to require that all solid waste or domestic septage collected within their respective jurisdictions be delivered to the district’s solid waste or domestic septage disposal or resource recovery site or sites.
