9215.0900 CONTENT OF CERTIFICATE OF NEED REQUEST.

Subpart 1.

Scope.

The certificate of need request shall contain the information described in this part.

Subp. 2.

Annual solid waste estimates.

The request shall include estimates of the amount and type of solid waste to be managed annually at the facility during its design life.

Subp. 3.

Origin of waste.

The request shall include identification of the origin of the solid waste including estimates of the amount of solid waste to be received annually from each county or district of origin. Information about quantities of solid waste from counties or districts outside the metropolitan area shall be based on information in approved county solid waste management plans. Information about quantities of solid waste from counties or districts within the metropolitan area shall be based on information in approved county or district solid waste master plans. If an approved county or district solid waste management plan or master plan does not state that solid waste from a county or district will be managed at the proposed facility, the request shall include a letter from the county or district board of the county or district generating the solid waste indicating that in the county's or district's best estimate the amount of solid waste in question is available for management at the proposed facility. The letter must be consistent with the approved plan and the plan amendment requirements of part 9215.0810.

Subp. 4.

Alternatives.

The request shall include an analysis of alternatives to the new or expanded disposal capacity if the new capacity has not been included in the approved county solid waste management plan or county master plan.

Subp. 5.

Estimate errors.

If the amount of new capacity needed is greater than the amount identified in the approved plan due to erroneous assumptions concerning the amount of solid waste generated, the application must document the basis for calculating the amount of capacity needed in lieu of an analysis of alternatives.
