An Act To Protect the Environment and Assist Municipalities with the Recycling, Reuse and Processing of Solid Waste
This bill is a concept draft pursuant to Joint Rule 208.
This bill proposes to enact measures to support the State’s solid waste management hierarchy and provide for the effective and efficient management of solid waste throughout the State by encouraging the conversion of municipal solid waste to electrical energy as a means to minimize the amount of municipal solid waste that is disposed of and stored in landfills.
The bill encourages materials management and conversion of municipal solid waste into electrical energy through the establishment of a net electrical billing process that will have the effect of reducing energy costs to municipalities who are the primary disposers of the waste. The net electrical billing process will also serve to encourage the reduction, recycling and effective management of municipal solid waste; preserve many existing well-paying jobs; enhance the diversification of the State’s energy resource mix; stabilize the State’s energy supply infrastructure; and result in a net environmental benefit to the State and its citizens.
1. The bill would establish a waste management net electrical billing program in accordance with the following provisions.
2. The bill would establish definitions necessary to implement the waste management net electrical billing program, including:
