§ 271.851. Investigations and corrective action.

 (a)  Upon notification by a person or municipality beneficially using or processing municipal waste under a general permit that there has been a change in the physical properties or chemical characteristics of the municipal waste being beneficially used or processed, including leachability, the Department will conduct an investigation and order necessary corrective action. Notice to the Department under this section does not, by itself, suspend continued beneficial use or processing after a change has occurred.

 (b)  Upon receipt of a signed, written complaint of a person whose health, safety or welfare may be adversely affected by a physical or chemical change in the properties of the municipal waste to be beneficially used or processed under a general permit, including leachability, the Department will determine the validity of the complaint and take appropriate action.
