Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Seneca Falls, Seneca County

Project Description:

Seneca Meadows, Inc. (SMI) has submitted a Part 360 Solid Waste Management Renewal and Modification application for a 360‑acre landfill located on Route 414 in the Town of Seneca Falls, Seneca County, New York. The facility is on an 898-acre site and consists of the existing landfill, storm water channels and access roads, storm water ponds, leachate treatment facility, the tire facility, and an existing soil borrow area. The Seneca Meadows Wetland Preserve, a wetland mitigation site which is required by the Part 360 permit, is located across Route 414 from the landfill.

The existing waste acceptance rate, which is an annual-permitted tonnage limit of 6,000 tons per day (tpd), is not proposed for increase. Operations of the landfill are under various stages of active working faces, interim cover, final cover, and closure.

The modification proposes to add the operations of the existing Waste Tire Processing Facility (storage and processing) to the Part 360 permit due to changes in the Part 360 regulations that require registered waste tire facilities to be permitted under Part 360. The current waste tire facility accepts 7,000 tires per day for recycling and use in the landfill for drainage systems and other components, and stores 200,000 tires per pile (20 piles total). No changes to the Waste Tire Facility operations are proposed.
