Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Babylon, Suffolk County

Project Description:

One World Recycling, located at 685 North Queens Avenue in the Village of Lindenhurst, Babylon (T), Suffolk (Co), is a permitted solid waste transfer station authorized to accept 370 tons per day (tpd) of commercial solid waste (CW) and construction and demolition (C&D) debris. The facility is equipped with a rail spur for transloading of outbound waste.

The facility has submitted a permit renewal and modification application to increase the daily throughput from 370 to 1,100 tpd including expansion of their existing waste storage building.

In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy in November 2013, the facility was granted an emergency authorization to operate at 1,100 tpd to handle the storm debris. Subsequently, in accordance with 6NYCRR Part 621.12, the facility requested to continue to operate at 800 tons per day to manage the storm debris until a determination is made by the Department regarding their proposed throughput increase.

Upon review of the application, the Department has determined that the facility can handle up to 500 tpd of waste with the existing infrastructure. The facility has submitted a building expansion plan to the Village of Lindenhurst. The Department has determined that upon completion of this proposed building expansion, the facility may operate at a rate of 650 tpd, based on 312 days of operation in a calendar year, but that it at no time exceed 800 ton on any given day.

The permittee will strictly be required to comply with the terms, conditions and equipment specifications of the rail carrier tariff applicable to the waste commodities shipped from the facility. The permittee is required to notify the Department as to the terms, conditions and equipment specifications of the tariff pursuant to which the permittee will operate.

Permittee will be required to ensure that railcars used for the shipment of CW, including CW mixed with or "topped off" with C&D debris, will be designated and handled as municipal solid waste (MSW) for purposes of transportation by rail in accordance with the applicable rail carrier tariff applicable to the commodity and will be loaded and covered in a manner that effectively prevents leakage and controls odors during transportation to prevent conditions that constitute a nuisance or hazard to health, safety or property.

The permittee will be limited to the hours and days of operation from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. No operations of any kind are permitted on Sunday.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Babylon, Suffolk County

Project Description:

Conduct a research, development, and demonstration project for evaluation of the truck to rail transfer of bale bag containers (BBC) of municipal solid waste (MSW) placed in railcars and covered with construction and demolition debris (C&D). Three alternative railcar closure methodologies will be tested and evaluated including: 1) synthetic mesh tarp, 2) Posi-Shell mineral mortar coating, and 3) flexible lid cover. The permittee is authorized to transfer up to 1,250 tons per day of bale bagged MSW from truck to train, not to exceed a monthly maximum of 22,000 tons.

During the period of time the RD&D project is being conducted, the facility is authorized to accept and transfer a combined total throughput of no more than 2,500 tons per day (based on a one week average) of construction and demolition (C&D) debris, recyclables, and bale bag containers (BBC) of municipal solid waste. No total throughput increase is sought. During the period of time the RD&D project is being conducted, the authority to transfer an additional 2,500 tons per day of solid waste in exempt leak-proof closed containers, identified in the NYAR Coastal Distribution Rail Transfer Permit #1-4720-03667/00001, will be suspended. Each of the three alternative railcar closure methodologies will be studied and evaluated for a period of not less than three months, unless the methodology fails and needs to be prematurely discontinued with Department (NYSDEC) approval.
