A. No site approval for the development or construction of a new Pollution Control Facility or expansion of an existing Pollution Control Facility in unincorporated McHenry County may be granted by the McHenry County Board unless an application is filed for approval of such a site and is submitted for hearing and consideration by said County Board. An application for site approval need not be submitted if exempt by law or if the site is not a Pollution Control Facility as defined by the Illinois Environmental Protection Act.
B. 1. The siting approval procedures, criteria and appeal procedures provided for in the Act for Pollution Control Facilities and as set forth in this Ordinance and the Articles of Rules and Procedures of the Pollution Control Facility Committee of McHenry County shall be the exclusive siting procedures, rules and appeal procedures to be applied in such matters. Local zoning or other local land use requirements shall not be applicable to such siting decisions.
2. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Ordinance, a transfer station used exclusively for landscape waste, where landscape waste is held no longer than twenty-four (24) hours from the time it was received, is not subject to the requirements of local siting approval under this Ordinance, but is subject only to local zoning approval.
