It shall remain the continuing responsibility of the owner or operator of every sanitary landfill facility to insure that the rates or charges received at the facility, whether or not these rates or charges are subject to the jurisdiction of the Board of Public Utilities pursuant to P.L. 1970, c. 40 (C. 48:13A-1 et seq.), will provide sufficient revenues for all costs, including closure costs, likely to be incurred by the facility. In order to insure the integrity of financial planning for closure, the owner or operator of every sanitary landfill facility, whether or not the rates or charges received by the facility are subject to the jurisdiction of the Board of Public Utilities, shall submit for approval to the department and, where relevant, the board, a financial plan addressing all aspects of closure. The owner or operator of every existing sanitary landfill facility for which a registration statement and engineering design have been filed with, and approved by, the department prior to June 1, 1985 shall submit a financial plan for closure within 180 days of the effective date of this act, except that the department, or the board, as the case may be, may grant an extension of up to 180 days, if sufficient reason exists to grant the extension. The owner or operator of every new sanitary landfill facility for which a registration statement and engineering statement have been filed with the department subsequent to June 1, 1985 shall submit for approval to the department and, where relevant, the board, a financial plan for closure prior to commencement of operations, except that the department, or the board, as the case may be, may grant an extension of up to 180 days, if sufficient reason exists to grant the extension.
