Closed Landfill Remediation Grant Program - Proposed Rulemaking

During the 2023 legislative session, the Colorado General Assembly passed HB 23-1194, creating the Closed Landfill Remediation Grant Program. The program will provide grants to eligible local governments to help with the costs of environmental remediation efforts for, and management of, closed landfills owned by local governments. 

HB 23-1194 directs the Solid and Hazardous Waste Commission to adopt rules on how the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment will administer the grant program. The Solid Waste and Materials Management Program is proposing Section 19 of the Regulations Pertaining to Solid Waste Sites and Facilities, 6 CCR 1007-2 Part 1. The Solid Waste and Materials Management Program held three stakeholder meetings on Section 19, and solicited three rounds of written comments with subsequent revisions to the proposed regulations in response to the stakeholder comments received. The proposed regulations and statement of basis and purpose are posted on the Solid Waste and Materials Management Program’s stakeholder webpage.

A formal rulemaking hearing will take place on May 21, 2024. Please visit the Solid and Hazardous Waste Commission webpage for upcoming rulemaking meetings.

More information can be found on the Solid Waste and Materials Management Program’s Closed Landfill Remediation Grant Program webpage.
