ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 12/21/2011

Monroe County

Applicant:

Xerox Corporation

Norwalk, CT 06850 -1600

Facility:

Xerox Joseph C Wilson Ctr for Technology
800 Phillips Rd
Webster, NY 14580

Application ID:

8-2654-00064/00040

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Webster, Monroe County


Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal and modification to the Xerox Corporation Hazardous Waste Management Permit at the Webster facility on Phillips Road. The permit was last renewed in 2000. The facility manages hazardous wastes generated at the Xerox Wilson Center which is engaged in research, development, and manufacturing/refurbishing copy/printing machines. The wastes, including acids, solvents, caustics, and heavy metals, are temporarily stored at the Xerox facility before being transported offsite to a permitted treatment or disposal facility. The permit includes a modification for the elimination of one waste storage tank. The permit is based on the 2009 application and subsequent updates and also incorporates minor modifications that have been made to the renewed permit since 2009 including changes in property boundaries and changes to the waste control plan. The facility includes an ongoing Corrective Action Program to address historical releases of hazardous wastes. Since the permit was renewed in 2000, two of the corrective action sites (Salt Road Contamination Site and the Closed Landfill) have progressed to Final Corrective Measures, and several interim corrective measures have been completed. The draft permit includes a Site-Wide Closure Strategy to address the remaining sites. As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments prior to making a final decision. The file, including application, Draft Permit, and Fact Sheet, is available for review and comment at NYSDEC Region 8. The permit application, Fact Sheet, and draft permit may also be viewed on-line at: ftp://ftp.dec.state.ny.us/der/828178.
