A recycling hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in North Little Rock.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission (APC&EC) will hold a public hearing in North Little Rock Wednesday. The purpose is to receive public comments on proposed revisions to Commission Regulation 11 .
The hearing starts at 2:00 p.m. in the Commission Room at the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) headquarters building, located at 5301 Northshore Drive in North Little Rock.
A proposed change to the regulation includes adding an extensive new chapter dealing with electronic waste (E-waste) recycling. Another change includes a provision that says once the state Landfill Post-Closure Trust Fund (LPCTF) reaches $25,000,000, fees collected for the trust fund will then go toward the E-waste program.
A copy of the regulation showing the proposed changes, along with related support documents, is available for viewing or downloading at the ADEQ web site located here.
