Queens County - The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Permit Modification for Storage Capacity and Hours of Operation of the Pebble Lane Associates, Inc. Fill Material Transfer Station; CEQR No.: 02-DOS-004Q will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The proposed action entails an increase in storage capacity from the current 4,666 cy to a maximum of 7,500 cy. The facility is also proposing to operate 24-hours per day, seven (7) days a week. Pebble Lane occupies an approximately 60,796 square foot parcel of land in the northern portion of block 2601, lot 6 (approximately 132,614 square feet in size). The facility currently has fourteen parking spaces on-site for trucks and employees vehicles. Additional parking spaces are available at a property across the street, located at 57-05 47th Street, which is also owned by the Pebble Lane Associates. Pebble Lane processes all fill material outdoors in the facility yard which contains storage areas for equipment and the materials that are sorted at the site. These processed materials are temporarily stored in separate areas of the yard and are then loaded by a front end loader into trucks that remove the material from the site. Hose bibs are used for dust suppression. The modified DSNY permit would continue the authorization for a daily fill material throughput of up to 1070 cy but would increase the on-site storage capacity of the facility by 2,834 cy from 4,666 cy to 7,500 cy. The proposed facility, located in an M3-1 district, would also be authorized to operate twenty four hours per day, seven days a week. The proposed modifications will distribute inbound and outbound truck trips (fifty-four 10 to 35 cy trucks) over a twenty-four hour period, thereby improving the existing traffic conditions during day time hours and eliminating any need for on-street vehicle queuing. Pebble Lane Associates, Inc. Fill Material Transfer Station (Pebble Lane) is located on 47th Street between 58th Road and Grand Avenue in Community District No. 5 in the Maspeth area of Queens, New York. The facility currently operates seven days a week from 7:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. with a maximum throughput of 1070 cubic yards per day (cyd) of fill material and a storage amount of 4,666 cubic yards (cy) of material.

Bronx (New York County) - The New York City Department of Sanitation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Soundview Park Composting Site will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is proposing to operate a compost site in an undeveloped portion of Soundview Park, a former landfill, located near the Randall Avenue entrance in the Bronx. The project would accept up to 3600 tons per year of leaves and small brush from DSNY packer trucks during the 6-week fall leaf collection period and approximately 180 tons of Christmas trees for mulching during January to create organic compost suitable for soil amendment purposes in 163-acre Soundview Park and other City park land and to be provided without charge to community gardeners. The project involves a fenced area of approximately 7 acres with a level pad of recycled asphalt millings on which windrows of leaves and other yard waste would be placed, turned occasionally with mechanized equipment, and eventually turn into compost, which would be screened and removed for use. The project would include a truck scale, small office trailer, and a fuel storage tank. Types of heavy equipment that would be used intermittently include a debagger trommel and screener, front end loader, tub grinder, dump truck, and water truck. Another 5 acres would include an upland drainage area and a 20-foot wide entrance drive from Randall Avenue. Berms would screen the site and mitigate any noise. The project includes an environmental monitoring program, contingency plans for addressing odor and for the delivery of unauthorized waste, and a litter control program. The project will provide sufficient compost to the Department of Parks and Recreation to remediate a minimum of 12 acres of parkland. This operation would replace another composting operation that was located in a portion of Ferry Point Park, Bronx, which is undergoing reconstruction. The project is proposed pursuant to the requirements of New York City’s Recycling Law. A NYSDEC permit is required pursuant to 6 NYCRR §360-5. The project is located in Soundview Park, near the Randall Avenue entrance, Bronx, New York City, NY, 10473. Community District 9.

The project would include a truck scale, small office trailer, a fuel storage tank, and stormwater drainage basins. Types of heavy equipment that would be used intermittently include a debagger trommel and screener, front end loader, tub grinder, compost turner, and dump truck.
