Bill Would Allow State Landfill Use Glass as a Cover

Mar 20, 2013

A bill introduced in the state Senate allows the Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation to once again use recycled glass as part of its daily cover material atop the landfill. The original amendment banned construction and demolition materials, including glass, for use as daily cover material at the landfill.

Legislators will be working this session to correct an added amendment to a bill that caused all the glass recycling to be buried in the landfill. RIPR caught up with the lawmaker whose legislation needs fixing.
