SAFETY-KLEEN Systems Inc
5400 Legacy Dr
Cluster II Bldg 3
Plano, TX 75024

Facility:

Safety Kleen Corp
1525 W Henrietta Rd
Avon, NY 14414

Application ID:

8-2420-00020/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 TItle 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Avon, Livingston County


Project Description:

The renewal application was submitted by Safety Kleen Systems, Inc., 7400 Legacy Dr. Cluster II Bldg.3, Plano, TX 75024 on April 16, 2008 as required in 6 NYCRR 373-1.8 and updated through August 2008.

FACILITY DESCRIPTION
Safety Kleen Systems, Inc., is an international service-oriented company whose customers are primarily engaged in automotive repair, industrial maintenance, manufacturing, photoprocessing and dry cleaning. The company offers spent solvent collection and reclamation. The facility operates under the state 6 NYCRR Part 373 hazardous waste management permit issued on 10/24/2003. The permit will expire on 10/24/2008, however, under the provisions of State Administrative Procedures Act section 401(2) the current permit will be extended until the department makes a final decision on the renewal application submitted by Safety Kleen. The Avon Service Center manages a variety of regulated and non-regulated waste. A vast majority of this waste will be handled on a transfer basis in accordance with applicable United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and New York State regulations. Hydrocarbon - and aqueous - based parts washer solvents will be managed for storage at the facility. These materials will be bulked and stored in a permitted 12,000-gallon, storage tank or if required, in two permitted container storage areas prior to bulking in the storage tank. Wastes managed by the Avon facility are transported from the Service Center to one of Safety-Kleen's several Recycle/Process Centers or to contracted reclaimer and, in many instances, the recovered materials are returned to customers as usable product. A unique feature of Safety-Kleen's solvent service (i.e., hydrocarbon- and aqueous-based parts washer solvents) is that Safety-Kleen provides the customer with the solvents and also manages the spent solvents. This "closed-loop" system allows Safety-Kleen to maintain control of the solvents except while they are in use at the customer's place of business. The Avon facility also provides assistance to waste generators for the proper transport and management of a variety of spent automotive and industrial materials. Majority of this facility's customers generate less than 1000 kg (2200 lbs.) per month of hazardous waste. All containerized ignitable wastes at the facility are stored 50 feet from the facility property line. The permit is also modified to upgrade the procedures for accepting and bulking wastes as described in the Waste Analysis Plan and Container Management Plan of the draft permit.

TENTATIVE DETERMINATION
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has reviewed the hazardous waste management permit renewal application from the above facility for renewal and modification of its hazardous waste management Part 373 permit.

After review of the permit application, the Department has found it to be complete. Based upon the complete application, the Department has made a tentative determination to renew the 6NYCRR Part 373 Permit of the facility for the continued storage of hazardous waste and has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to the regulations in 6NYCRR Part 373-2 (Final Status Standards for Owners and Operators of Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities) as well as with all other applicable hazardous waste management laws and regulations.

Based upon available information, the Department has made an assessment of the need for corrective action and has made a tentative determination that there has been no release of hazardous wastes or hazardous constituents to the environment that would institute corrective action.
