NSWMA, SWANA to File Brief Supporting RD&D Rule

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has granted the National Solid Wastes Management Association , Washington, D.C., and the Solid Waste Association of North America, Silver Spring, Md., permission to file a joint amicus brief in a lawsuit brought by the Madison, Wis.-based GrassRoots Recycling Network (GRRN). GRRN's lawsuit challenges the Environmental Protection Agency's “Research, Development and Demonstration Permits for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills” final rule. The brief will defend the rule. GRRN opposed the filing of the amicus brief.
