Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act

Project is Located:

Colonie, Albany County

Project Description:

Safety-Kleen Systems, Inc., is a solvent distributer and recycler (spent solvent collection and reclamation). Its customers are primarily engaged in automotive repair, industrial maintenance, manufacturing, photoprocessing and dry cleaning. The facility operates under the state 6 NYCRR Part 373 hazardous waste management permit issued on December 31, 2010. The permit was due to expire on December 30, 2015, but Safety-Kleen applied for permit renewal on June 10, 2015, so the existing permit is extended pursuant to the State Administrative Procedures Act (SAPA), Section 401(2), until the Department makes a determination on the renewal application.

The Safety-Kleen Cohoes facility is located in a business/industrial park and is zoned for commercial use. The Cohoes Service Center manages a variety of regulated and non‑regulated waste, the majority of this facility's customers generate less than 1000 kg (2200 lbs.) per month of hazardous waste. A vast majority of this waste will be handled on a transfer basis in accordance with applicable United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and New York regulations. Hydrocarbon ‑ and aqueous ‑ based parts washer solvents will be managed for storage at the facility. These materials will be bulked and stored in a permitted 12,000‑gallon, storage tank or if required, in two permitted container storage areas prior to bulking in the storage tank. Wastes managed by the Cohoes facility are transported from the Service Center to one of Safety‑Kleen's several Recycle/Process Centers or to contract reclaimer and, in many instances, the recovered materials are returned to customers as usable product. The Cohoes facility also provides assistance to waste generators for the proper transport and management of a variety of spent automotive and industrial materials. All containerized ignitable wastes at the facility are stored 50 feet from the facility property line.

After review of the permit application, the Department has found it to be complete. Based upon the complete application, the Department has made a tentative determination to renew the 6NYCRR Part 373 Permit of the facility for the continued storage of hazardous waste and has prepared a Draft Permit pursuant to the regulations in 6NYCRR Part 373‑2 (Final Status Standards for Owners and Operators of Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities) as well as with all other applicable hazardous waste management laws and regulations.

Based upon available information, the Department has made an assessment of the need for corrective action and has made a tentative determination that there has been no release of hazardous wastes or hazardous constituents to the environment that would institute corrective action.

Copies of the application, Fact Sheet, and Draft Permit are available for public review during normal business hours at the address of the contact person listed below or at New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Solid and Hazardous Materials, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233, contact person: Contact Person: Kent Johnson, (518) 402‑9013.
