Regulation 8 Rule 34: Solid Waste Disposal Sites - Under Development

Learn about the Air District's process for amending Regulation 8, Rule 34, which addresses emissions of methane and non-methane organic compounds from landfills.

Find out about the status and anticipated timeline of the rule development process. Information on hearings, workshops, and other events is provided below, along with supporting documents and materials.


The Air District has started the process of updating Rule 8-34 to address emissions of methane and non-methane organic compounds from landfills in the Bay Area. Amendments to Regulation 8, Rule 34: Solid Waste Disposal Sites will aim to minimize these emissions; this effort is part of the Air District's Basin-Wide Methane Strategy (as outlined in the 2017 Clean Air Plan).

In June 2019, the Air District will host a series of workshops on the development of Rule 8-34 amendments and other rule development activity for climate pollutants. For details on the workshops, see the Events section of this page.

Workshop materials are now available, including a concept paper for Rule 8-34 amendments. Comments will be accepted through Monday, July 8, 2019.
