Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Dewitt, Onondaga County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has reviewed the hazardous waste management permit application from Safety Kleen Systems, Inc. for renewal of its hazardous waste management Part 373 permit. The Department has made a tentative determination to renew the 6NYCRR Part 373 Permit to continue its authorization to operate the hazardous waste storage facility. Safety Kleen Systems, Inc., formerly Safety Kleen Corporation, is a solvent distributor and recycler (reclaimer). Its customers are primarily engaged in automotive repair, industrial maintenance 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 10/28/91. The area is zoned for commercial use and the facility is located in a business/industrial park. Majority of this facility's customers generate less than 1000 kg (2200 lbs.) of spent solvents. Wastes managed by Safety Kleen Systems are transported in its transport vehicles to one of Safety Kleen's Recycle/Process Centers or to contract reclaimers located outside New York State. In many instances the recovered materials are returned to customers as usable product.

The existing permitted 20,000‑gallon hazardous waste storage tank will continue its operation under the renewed permit. The recyclable waste solvents generated by the Parts Washer Services, which is the primary business of the facility, will be collected by Safety Kleen's own transport vehicles and stored in the permitted tank prior to transportation to the Recycle centers in tanker trucks. Containerized spent parts washer solvent routed to the facility will remain on the transport vehicles for a limited time prior to it being transferred into the bulk storage tank through the return and fill station or transferred to a permitted staging area if required. Safety Kleen stores in the permitted storage tank three types of spent cleaning solvents: ignitable solvents, water‑based solvents and solvents with a high flash point which are not classified as ignitable under the Department regulations. All these wastes derived from these solvents are managed as hazardous wastes. All ignitable wastes at the facility will be stored 50 feet from the facility property line.

In lieu of, or in addition to, the submission of comments as stated above, any interested person may request a Public Hearing. Any request for a public hearing must be made in writing, stating the nature of the issues proposed to be raised in the hearing and submitted to the above‑mentioned person no later than the last filing date.
