MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — An appeals court says Alabama's environmental regulators went too far in allowing landfill operators to cover waste with anything other than dirt.

The Alabama Court of Civil Appeals ruled Friday in a lawsuit filed by people who live near two central Alabama dumps, Arrowhead Landfill in Perry County and Stone's Throw Landfill in Tallapoosa County.

The decision says the law required that companies use at least 6 inches of soil to cover material that's dumped into landfills.
