(70 ILCS 3110/15)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 7115)
Upon adoption by the Service of a 5-year plan
providing for solid waste disposal and energy and heat generating projects
and approval of such plan by
the affected municipalities a service district shall be established in the
manner and following the schedule set forth in the 5-year plan providing
for a solid waste disposal and energy and heat generating project. The Service is
responsible for the
disposal of solid wastes, including any wastewater treatment residue, as
set forth in the 5-year plan providing for solid waste disposal projects.
Within the service district, no subdivision or person may dispose of solid
wastes except through projects of the Service or of a subdivision or person
designated by the 5-year plan or under reasonable conditions the Service
stipulates; however, it is not intended by this Section that the Service,
in the absence of an agreement to do so, be required to assume
responsibility over any wastewater treatment activity or project or over any
solid waste activity or project of any person or subdivision that exist on
the effective date of this Act.
Nothing contained in this Act shall affect the power of the Environmental
Protection Agency to undertake any of the actions authorized in the
Environmental Protection Act.
