[GreenYes] Re: Michigan bill could repeal landfill ban on yard waste



I'm sorry to report, that Eric is incorrect about Nebraska.

The Unicameral weakened the yardwaste landfill ban: "One exception to
this restriction is when the yard waste is placed in a permitted
landfill and used as part of a system to produce methane as a fuel
source. The system must include an active landfill gas collection
system and a legitimate user of the methane fuel."

The Pheasant Point landfill owned by Waste Management now accepts
yardwaste as highlighted in this document and specifications set by
the state: http://www.deq.state.ne.us/Publica.nsf/0/4aed925e063574e7862572b40065ced1/$FILE/07-291.pdf

Nebraska's landfill bans and landfill requirements are in this
