[greenyes] Criteria to show a landfill is 'needed'


Is anyone aware of state landfill siting laws that include requirements for
the applicant to prove that the landfill is 'needed'?

Wisconsin law has such a requirement, and our state regulatory agency is
looking at criteria to help it in the decision-making process.

Alternatively, are there state agencies that make assessments of the 'need'
for solid waste disposal capacity and use that information to guide the
number and size of landfills that will be allowed to be developed?

Thanks much,
