Municipal Financial Assurance

Pursuant to 40 CFR 258.74 and the New Hampshire Solid Waste Rules Chapter Env-Sw 1400 municipalities that choose to use the state approved local government financial test (LOGO) to fulfill their financial assurance obligations are required to submit to DES annual updates within 180 days of the end of the city's or town's fiscal year.

In an effort to make the submittal process easier, DES created two forms for reporting LOGO information. One form is for municipal landfills that are operating Adobe Acrobat Reader Symboland one is for municipal landfills that are inactive or capped Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol.

Although, municipalities will no longer be required to routinely submit all supporting financial assurance documentation to DES at the time the form is submitted, the municipality is required to maintain all documentation on file as part of the facility's operating record. Also, DES reserves the right to randomly inspect the facility's operating records to ensure that information being reported is accurate and that documentation is being kept on file as required.

DES is not given the authority through federal regulations to waive any of the requirements or extend the date of filing. Therefore, financial information should be filed in a timely manner to ensure that the appropriate LOGO form is submitted before the end of the city's or town's fiscal year.
