ENB Public Notice for Program Policy Review and Comment

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has prepared the draft Program Policy: Draft Solid Waste Management Facility Permitting Policy.

This draft Program Policy clarifies the Department of Environmental Conservation's (Department's) procedures with regard to solid waste management facility permitting. The policy seeks to maximize the Department's use of the permitting process to facilitate comprehensive solid waste management planning and ensure best practices in solid waste management facility operations.

The Department has classified this action under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (ECL Article 8; Part 617 of Title 6 of the Official Compilation of Codes Rules and Regulations of the State of New York) as an Unlisted action. The Department is the only involved agency.

The draft Program Policy and short-form environmental assessment form ("EAF") and Coastal Zone Management Assessment Form ("CAF") can be obtained from the Division of Solid and Hazardous Materials, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-7250; (518) 402-8651.
