No person may place, or transport for placement, solid waste that is generated in the metropolitan area in a portion of a disposal facility that does not comply with the minimum requirements for design, construction, and operation of a new disposal facility for the type of solid waste being disposed. Each metropolitan county shall, and each county in which is located a disposal facility may, enforce this prohibition and may impose penalties and recover attorney fees and court costs to the same extent as for enforcement of a designation ordinance under section 115A.86, subdivision 6. The commissioner of the Pollution Control Agency may enforce this section under section 115.071 or 116.072.
