Onondaga County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Syracuse Fiber Recycling, LLC., Part 360 Solid Waste Permit will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the relocation/expansion of the existing, DEC permitted fiber recycling facility from its Allied Signal industrial site to the unoccupied Church & Dwight building. The proposal is to receive, store, manufacture, and ship animal bedding material generated from beneficial reuses of paper mill sludge, wood chips, and cement kiln dust. The bedding components have DEC Beneficial Use Determination (BUD), which allows use of the material as animal bedding. A maximum production of 3,000 tons per week of bedding is planned, with the nominal bedding production to be approximately 30 tons per hour and 1,500 tons per week. The project is located at 1416 Willis Ave., the old Church & Dwight building.
