Stricter guidelines for Texas landfills

By  | 

Landfill officials are tightening their operations to meet stricter state guidelines.

Last year the Texas Commission on Landfill Quality required every landfill in the state to write a new operations plan. They also mandated daily trash pickup.

Officials say they began pick-up two years ago because they anticipated changes were coming.

The new plan was drafted in December and is awaiting public comment before going into effect.

The new plan is scheduled to be put into action in June.
