New Mexico finalizes air emissions rules for MSWLFs

The New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) has amended the regulations for controlling the gas emissions from municipal solid waste landfills (MSWLFs) in order to incorporate the relatively recent amendments to EPA’s emission standards for “existing” MSWLFs. The EPA standards are aimed at reducing emissions of landfill gas and its components, including methane.

According to the EPA, an existing MSWLF is a landfill for which construction, modification, or reconstruction began on or before July 17, 2014. The designated New Mexico facilities to which the EPA amendments apply are those that have accepted waste after November 8, 1987, or that have additional design capacity available for future waste deposition.

In order to meet the EPA requirement that there be an enforceable State mechanism to implement EPA’s new emission guidelines, the New Mexico regulations governing MSWLFs were amended. New Mexico’s amended regulations involve compliance with 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart XXX (new MSWLFs) and 40 CFR Subpart Cf (existing MSWLs). They include new definitions, reporting requirements, recordkeeping, and compliance schedules for construction and installation of control systems.

The amended rules went into effect on May 31, 2017.
