Any person investigating an area for the purpose of siting a commercial solid waste
facility where no current solid waste permit exists, in order to determine a feasible,
approximate location, shall prior to filing an application for a solid waste permit
publish a Class II legal advertisement in a qualified newspaper serving the county
where the proposed site is to be located. Such notice shall inform the public of the location, nature and other details of
the proposed activity as prescribed in rules promulgated by the director. Within five days of such publication such person shall file with the director a
pre-siting notice, which shall be made in writing on forms prescribed by the director
and shall be signed and verified by the applicant. Such notice shall contain a certification of publication from a qualified newspaper,
description of the area, the period of investigative review, a United States geological
survey topographic map and a map showing the location of property boundaries of the
area proposed for siting and other such information as required by rules promulgated
pursuant to this section. The director shall hold a public hearing on the pre-siting notice in the area potentially
affected. The director shall define pre-siting activities by promulgating legislative rules
pursuant to chapter twenty-nine-a of this code. The pre-siting notice, as prescribed by the director, shall also be filed with the
county or regional solid waste authority, established pursuant to article four, chapter
twenty-two-c of this code, according to the county or region in which the proposed
site is located within five days of the publication of the notice.
