Authority

   The provisions of this Chapter 76 issued under section 6 of the Pennsylvania Solid Waste Resource Recovery Development Act (35 P. S. §  755.6); and section 1920-A of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. §  510-20), unless otherwise noted.

Notes of Decisions

   Local Authority

   The borough had no power to grant or deny the Department of Environmental Resources solid waste permit which the energy company had sought from the Department. The Department was responsible for administering the issuance of its own permits. The borough erred in denying the conditional use application on the basis that the energy company would not be issued the Department’s permit. Glendon Energy Co. v. Glendon Borough, 656 A.2d 150 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1995); appeal denied 670 A.2d 644 (Pa. 1995).
