Notice of Acceptance of Supplemental Draft EIS

Monroe County - The Zoning Board Of Appeals of the Town of Perinton, as lead agency, has accepted a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed High Acres Landfill and Recycling Center - Western Expansion Landfill. The action involves Waste Management of New York, LLC (WMNY) proposing an expansion of the existing Western Expansion Landfill (WEX) and Parkway Expansion Phase I, located on the south side of Perinton Parkway in Perinton, Monroe County, New York. The proposed project, called the Parkway Expansion Phase II, is the continuation of the expansion to the east of the permitted WEX and Phase I and to the north and east of the closed High Acres Landfill.

Phase II is located generally to the north and east of Phase I and will have a footprint of 59 acres. Phase II will extend over approximately 15.5 acres of the northeast corner of the closed High Acres landfill, and will include 43.5 acres of "new" landfill area including seven acres of the former Adam's waste area. The site life of Phase II is approximately 8-9 years. The proposed fill height is approximately 29 feet higher than the closed High Acres Landfill and the WEX and Phase I.

Based on WMNY's current project plans, Phase II will extend to a maximum height of approximately 688 feet mean sea level (msl). In comparison, Phase I is presently permitted for a maximum height of approximately 680 feet msl and the existing final cover system for the closed landfill reaches a maximum elevation of approximately 659 feet msl.

Wastes to be accepted by WMNY in the expanded landfill will be identical to the waste stream presently authorized by the NYSDEC for the existing WEX and Phase I operations. WMNY will continue to accept waste volumes in accordance with the currently approved design capacity of 3,500 tons per day.
