22.214.171.124 OBJECTIVE: The objective of this part is to establish requirements for municipal solid waste landfills in order to control emissions of nonmethane organic compounds (NMOC).
[126.96.36.199 NMAC - Rp, 188.8.131.52 NMAC, 05/31/17]
184.108.40.206 DEFINITIONS: In addition to the terms defined in 20.2.2 NMAC (Definitions), and those defined in 40 CFR 60 Subpart A, all definitions found in 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart XXX apply to new municipal solid waste landfills (MSWLs) and all definitions found in 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart Cf apply to existing MSWLs. As used in this part:
A. “Active municipal solid waste landfill” or “active MSWL” means an MSWL in which solid waste is being placed or an MSWL that is planned to accept waste in the future.
B. “Closed municipal solid waste landfill” or “closed MSWL” means an MSWL in which solid waste is no longer being placed, and in which no additional solid wastes will be placed without first filing a notification of modification as prescribed in 40 CFR 60.7(a)(4). Once a notification of modification has been filed and additional solid waste is placed in the MSWL, the MSWL is no longer closed.
C. "Existing municipal solid waste landfill" or “existing MSWL” means an active or closed MSWL meeting the following conditions:
(1) Construction, reconstruction, or modification was commenced on or before July 17, 2014; and
(2) The MSWL has accepted waste at any time since November 8, 1987, or has additional design capacity available for future waste deposition.
D. “Modification” means an increase in the permitted volume design capacity of an MSWL by either lateral or vertical expansion based on its permitted design capacity as of July 17, 2014. Modification does not occur until the owner or operator commences construction on the lateral or vertical expansion.
E. "Municipal solid waste landfill” or “MSWL” means an entire disposal facility in a contiguous geographical space where household waste is placed in or on land. An MSWL may also receive other types of Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Subtitle D wastes such as commercial solid waste, nonhazardous sludge, conditionally exempt small quantity generator waste, and industrial solid waste. Portions of an MSWL may be separated by access roads. An MSWL may be publicly or privately owned. An MSWL may be new, existing, or a lateral expansion.
F. "New municipal solid waste landfill" or “new MSWL” means an MSWL that commenced construction, reconstruction, or modification after July 17, 2014.
G. "NMOC" means nonmethane organic compounds as measured according to the provisions of either 40 CFR 60 Subpart Cf or 40 CFR 60 Subpart XXX. NMOC may include many compounds commonly referred to as VOC (volatile organic compounds) and HAP (hazardous air pollutants).

184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11 [RESERVED]
A. Existing municipal solid waste landfills: An owner or operator of an existing (active or closed) MSWL is subject to all provisions specified in 40 CFR 60 Subpart Cf as promulgated by the United States environmental protection agency on August 29, 2016, except as provided for in Section 111 of this part. Physical or operational changes made to an existing MSWL solely to comply with an emission guideline are not considered a modification or a reconstruction and would not subject an existing MSWL to the requirements of a standard of performance for new MSWLs.
B. New municipal solid waste landfills: In addition to being subject to 18.104.22.168 NMAC new MSWLs are subject to 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart XXX as incorporated by reference in 20.2.77 NMAC (New Source Performance Standards).
[22.214.171.124 NMAC - Rp, 126.96.36.199 NMAC, 05/31/17]
188.8.131.52 PERMITTING REQUIREMENTS:
A. Operating permits: New and existing active MSWLs with design capacities greater than or equal to 2.5 million megagrams and 2.5 million cubic meters are subject to permitting requirements under 20.2.70 NMAC (Operating Permits). Closed MSWLs and new and existing MSWLs with design capacities less than 2.5 million megagrams or 2.5 million cubic meters are not subject to permitting requirements under 20.2.70 NMAC unless they are major sources as defined in 20.2.70 NMAC.
B. Construction permits: Emissions of NMOC from MSWLs subject to 20.2.64 NMAC shall not be included in applicability determinations under 20.2.72 NMAC or be subject to permit requirements under that part solely on the basis of NMOC emissions.
[184.108.40.206 NMAC - Rp, 220.127.116.11 NMAC, 05/31/17]
18.104.22.168 REQUIREMENTS FOR EXISTING MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE LANDFILLS:
A. Requirements for existing (active and closed) MSWLs shall be in accordance with 40 CFR 60 Subpart Cf, except as provided in Subsections B and C below.
B. All reports required in 40 CFR 60 Subpart Cf shall be submitted to the department according to the schedules outlined in that subpart. Additional notifications regarding progress toward meeting the final compliance schedule for control system installation and startup shall be submitted to the department as follows:
(1) Contracts for construction of collection and control systems shall be awarded or orders for purchase of components shall be completed no later than six months following submission of the final control plan;
(2) On-site construction or installation of the collection and control system shall be initiated no later than nine months following submission of the final control plan;
(3) On-site construction or installation of the collection and control system shall be completed no later than 29 months following the submission of an annual NMOC emission rate report showing NMOC emissions equal to or exceeding the emissions threshold in Subpart Cf; and
(4) Initial performance testing shall be scheduled for no later than 150 days following the final compliance date in Subpart Cf.
C. Exceptions: On a case by case basis, an existing active or closed MSWL may apply for a less stringent emission standard or longer compliance schedule than those otherwise required by this part, provided that the owner or operator demonstrates to the department:
(1) unreasonable cost of control including, but not limited to MSWL age, location, or basic design;
(2) physical impossibility or impracticability of installing necessary control equipment; or
(3) other environmental factors specific to the MSWL that make application of a less stringent standard or final compliance time significantly more reasonable.
