Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Staten Island, Richmond County
Project Description:

The Applicant, Interstate Materials Corp. (Interstate or the Applicant), proposes to construct and operate a Solid Waste Transfer Station in Staten Island, New York. The site is bounded by a construction material storage yard to the north, Port Mobil Corporation to the south, the Arthur Kill to the west, and several industrial properties to the east on Industrial Loop Road. The proposed transfer station, to be located on Interstate's existing property located at 211 Johnson Street, will consist of a dredged materials processing facility, a construction and demolition debris (C&D) processing facility, and a putrescible solid waste (PSW) transfer station, encompassing a total of 18 acres of property, including Johnson Street, a private street. The proposed solid waste transfer station will occupy the same basic footprint (approximately 15 acres) as the existing facility which is presently operating as a clean fill material transfer station under New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) registration #43W43, capable of storing 160,000 cubic yards of clean fill, and under New York City Department of Sanitation (NYCDOS) Permit No. 11, capable of storing up to 75,000 cubic yards. Interstate's NYCDOS permit currently allows the facility to process up to 10,000 cubic yards per day of fill material.

The proposed facility's dredge material processing area is designed to process for reuse an average of 5,000 cubic yards of dredged material per week. The proposed PSW transfer building will be an enclosed 17,500 square foot structure with a concrete slab floor. The facility will only accept commercial PSW (this facility will not accept industrial waste) from sources within Staten Island that is transported via private carters serving the Borough of Staten Island and will be capable of processing up to 1,200 tons per day of PSW. The proposed C&D processing area will accept C & D debris from sources within the NYC metropolitan area and will be capable of processing approximately 2,625 tons (3,500 cubic yards) per day of C&D, and storing approximately 5,700 tons (7,600 cubic yards) of reusable C&D material, and 3,400 tons (4,500 cubic yards) of waste C&D material.
