Title: Review the draft Title V with care

The Title V permitting process is well underway for many industries and just beginning for others. Waste Management recently conducted the first in-depth reviews of draft Title V permits for some of its municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. The Company`s comments on the draft permits were numerous. The draft permits contained some obvious as well as several less obvious errors. The results of these reviews identified a need to scrutinize carefully each and every draft permit issued to the Company`s landfills. The Company expects to require Title V permits for most of its 140 plus active landfills, due to the recently-enacted New Source Performance Standards for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills. Many issues of concern were encountered during the review. Had these issues not been identified, the facility would have had to live with an unnecessarily burdensome permit consisting of permit conditions that were more strict than the regulations required and lacking protections allowed by the law. This paper discusses many of the issues of concern identified during the draft permit review. Although many of the issues addressed in this paper are specific to MSW landfills, many of the issues are also applicable to Title V permits in general.
