The Principal and the Surety promise to pay the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency ("IEPA") the above penal sum unless the Principal or Surety provides closure and post-closure care or corrective action for each site in accordance with the closure and post-closure care or corrective action plans for that site. To the payment of this obligation the Principal and Surety jointly and severally bind themselves, their heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns.
Whereas the Principal is required, under Section 21(d) of the Environmental Protection Act [415 ILCS 5/21(d)], to have a permit to conduct a waste disposal operation.

The Surety shall pay the penal sum to the IEPA or provide closure and post-closure care or corrective action in accordance with the closure and post-closure care or corrective action plans for the site if, during the term of the bond, the Principal fails to provide closure or post-closure care or corrective action for any site in accordance with the closure and post-closure care or corrective action plans for that site as guaranteed by this bond. The Principal fails to so provide when the Principal:

If the Surety notifies the IEPA that it intends to provide closure and post-closure care or corrective action, then the Surety must initiate closure and post-closure care or corrective action within 60 days after the IEPA mailed notice to the Surety that the Principal met one or more of the conditions described above. The Surety must complete closure and post-closure care or corrective action in accordance with the closure and post-closure care or corrective action plans, or pay the penal sum.
The liability of the Surety shall not be discharged by any payment or succession of payments unless and until such payment or payments shall amount in the aggregate to the penal sum of the bond. In no event shall the obligation of the Surety exceed the amount of the penal sum.
This bond shall expire on the ____ day of _______________, ______ [date], but that expiration date shall be automatically extended for a period of [at least one year] on [date] and on each successive expiration date, unless, at least 120 days before the current expiration date, the Surety notifies both the IEPA and the Principal by certified mail that the Surety has decided not to extend the term of this surety bond beyond the current expiration date. The 120 days will begin on the date when both the Principal and the IEPA have received the notice, as evidenced by the return receipts.
