Senate Committee Considers Yard Waste Ban Exemption

Posted on October 29, 2013 by Dene Westbrook

This afternoon the Senate Energy & Technology held a hearing on Senate Bill 314, a bill that would lift the yard waste ban for landfills that meet certain criteria. This is, however, a community option.

The League is supportive of this legislation as we have for the last few legislative sessions. The crux of the support is that these bills are a local option, and communities can choose what is best for their needs.

Chairman Nofs indicated that there would likely be an additional hearing in the coming weeks to hear more testimony.
