Project is Located:

Project Description:

The Department has drafted a permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law and Title V of the Clean Air Act Amendments, and made a tentative decision to approve the Title V renewal permit for Broome County's solid waste landfill, located at 286 Knapp Road, Binghamton, NY 13902. This is the second five year Title V permit renewal for this facility. No significant changes have occurred at the landfill and the renewal permit is essentially the same as the previous renewal permit regarding applicably requirements and permit conditions.

The facility is a municipal landfill, SIC code 4953. The landfill receives municipal and private waste for disposal. The facility has leachate collection and storage, weigh station and miscellaneous equipment to move, compact and cover the waste materials. An independent private company, Broome Energy Resources, LLC, has installed a landfill gas collection system in some sections of the landfill and operates a landfill gas to energy facility consisting of engine/generators and a flare.

The Broome County Landfill is subject to the NYS Emission Guidelines for Municipal Solid Waste Landfill Emissions and 40 CFR 60, subpart WWW, Standards of Performance for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills. A Title V operating permit is required pursuant to 6 NYCRR 201-6. The County has demonstrated, through site specific (Tier 2) testing, that emissions of non-methane organic compounds (NMOC) are below 50 megagrams (Mg) per year. Landfills with NMOC emissions less than 50 megagrams per year are not subject to the collection and control requirements specified in 40 CFR 60.752(b)(2) until such time as emissions of NMOC are 50 Mg or greater. The County is required to submit a NMOC emission report annually, semi-annual compliance monitoring reports, and an annual compliance certification.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the US EPA has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.
