Facility: NYC Dos Composting Facility

Bronx, NY 10473-
Application ID: 2-6007-00277/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Bronx, Bronx County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to operate a yard waste composting facility at an approximately 12-acre site located within an undeveloped portion of Soundview Park, a former landfill, located off Randall Avenue in the Bronx.  The facility would receive approximately 3,600 tons per year of leaves, and small brush every fall for composting, and approximately 180 tons per year of discarded Christmas trees every winter for mulching. Composting would take place within outdoor windrows; odor-suppressing techniques would be employed.  Composting activities would occur on an 18" pad of recycled asphalt millings.  Upon closure, the facility elements, including the asphalt pad, would be removed and the site restored and revegetated.  The project requires the use of approximately 12 acres for composting purposes, about 7 acres enclosed by chain link fencing, together with an access road and upland drainage area of roughly 5 acres.  The applicant has therefore proposed to work with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation to remediate the soil and restore native vegetation to a minimum of 12 acres of parkland.
