§

6603i. Landfill closure grants

(a) The

secretary is authorized to award grants to municipalities and solid waste

management districts for the portion of the cost of closure of unlined

landfills receiving municipal solid waste located within the municipality or

district. These grants shall be available to assist in the closure of any

existing unlined landfills, accepting solid waste as of the effective date of

this act.

(b) The amount

of any grants made under this section shall not exceed the actual costs of

closure of the facility, minus an amount equal to the total tonnage of waste

disposed at the facility between July 1, 1989 and the last date of acceptance

of solid waste for disposal at the facility, multiplied by $24.00 per ton.

Eligible closure costs shall include all necessary construction costs, a

reasonable cost for engineering oversight, and an amount, not to exceed five

percent or $50,000.00, whichever is less, of the construction costs, to cover

the legal, administrative and fiscal costs. (Added 1991, No. 256 (Adj. Sess.), §

29, eff. June 9, 1992; amended 2005, No. 215 (Adj. Sess.), § 214.)
