Applicant: Waste Management Of New York LLC
123 Varick Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11237
Facility: Waste Mgmt-485 Scott Ave
485 Scott Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11222
Application ID: 2-6101-00026/00017
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Brooklyn, Kings County
Project Description:
Modification of the operation of an existing transfer station, recyclables handling and recovery facility, and construction and demolition debris processing facility.  The Applicant proposes to reduce the subject facility’s daily throughput of construction and demolition debris (C&D) by 375 tons per day (TPD) and increase its daily throughput of putrescible solid waste (PSW) by 375 TPD.  Because C&D is received in smaller loads than PSW, the proposed modification would result in a decrease in the facility’s authorized inbound truck traffic of ten trucks per day. (Because there is no difference in the size of outbound loads of C&D and PSW, the proposed modification would result in no change in the number of authorized outbound  trucks associated with the subject facility.)  The facility has adequate odor controls and storage capacity, and is otherwise able to accommodate an additional 375 TPD PSW without increasing any facility impact associated with odor, dust, vectors, noise, or other nuisance.

Application ID: 2-6104-00010/00016
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Brooklyn, Kings County
Project Description:
Modification of the operation of an existing transfer station.  The Applicant proposes to reduce the subject facility’s permitted daily throughput of sewage grit and screenings by 300 tons per day (TPD) and increase its daily permitted throughput of putrescible solid waste (PSW) by 300 TPD. This modification would not change the facility’s total permitted daily throughput of solid waste or the authorized amount of truck traffic associated with the facility.

The facility’s current permitted daily throughput capacity is 3,950 TPD PSW, 330 TPD sewage grit and screenings, and 30 TPD yard waste.  The proposed modification would result in the following permitted facility daily throughput:  4,250 TPD PSW, 30 TPD sewage grit and screenings, and 30 TPD yard waste.  Aside from changes in facility operation associated with the handling of more PSW and less sewage grit and screenings, no other facility operation would change as a result of the proposed modification.
