ENB - Region 9 Notices 8/8/2012

Negative Declaration

Niagara County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservaiton (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cambria Recycling Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Cambria Recycling Facility is operated by Modern Recycling, Inc. (Modern) and currently has a Town Special Use Permit which allows the facility to sort, bale, and store metal cans, textiles, bottles and scrap paper. The facility also has a NYS DEC Solid Waste Registration which allows for the consolidation and transfer of household-generated, source-separated electronic waste. With this application, Modern proposes to accept a wide variety of recyclable materials and construction and demolition debris as defined in 6 NYCRR 360-1.2(b). The facility will perform several basic material processing functions, including separation (hand pick or mechanical), baling, size reduction and screening. The recovered materials will be marketed to end users. Modern also proposes to compost source-separated food processing waste, organic waste, yard waste and clean wood under a Part 360 registration in accordance with Part 360-5. The facility will accept clean wood, yard waste, shingles, old corrugated cardboard, paper and newsprint, recyclables (plastic, metal cans, textiles), concrete, glass and clean hard fill, metal, whole tires (<1000 at a time), electronics, source-separated organic waste for composting (≤ 1,000 cyds per year food processing waste) and source-separated clean drywall. The proposed acceptance rate is 500 tons per day. The existing building on site will be used for tipping and recycling and the remainder of the site will be developed for composting and material stockpiles. The project is located at 5204 Lockport Junction Road in Cambria, New York.
