The Act amends the Georgia Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Act and allows certain solid waste disposal facilities to vertically expand their existing facilities beyond their originally permitted capacity during a twenty-four month period. The Act requires classifications of modifications as either major or minor modifications for public notice purposes. It defines the public notice procedures required before a major modification. Written verification of compliance with local zoning or land use ordinances and solid waste reduction programs, which is required of permit applicants, is extended to those facilities that have been granted a major modification.
