Public Scoping Session

County: Niagara

Lead Agency: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

Project Title: Allied/BFI Waste Systems of North America, Inc. (BFI)Proposed Sanitary VIII Landfill

A public scoping session will be held at the Town of Niagara Town Hall on Tuesday, September 9, 2003 between 6:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Copies of the Draft Scoping Document are available at the Town of Niagara Town Hall, 7105 Lockport Road, Niagara Falls; Earl W. Brydges Public Library, 1425 Main Street, Niagara Falls; LaSalle Branch Public Library, 8728 Buffalo Avenue, Niagara Falls; and DECís Buffalo Office.

Brief Project Description: The action involves the construction and operation of a proposed Sanitary VIII Landfill to be located in the central area of the existing BFI site. Of the approximately 370 acre site, about 160 acres contain closed or operational solid waste landfill facilities, 45 acres are closed intermediate or chemical waste landfill facilities, 6 acres consist of a water treatment facility, 30 acres are unusable due to location and proximity to existing on-site facilities, 15 acres are for site perimeter drainage or storm water retention, and 30 acres are reserved for site administration, offices and access. Therefore, about 84 acres exist within the center of the site for future landfill construction. The Sanitary VIII Landfill is proposed to be located in that acreage and would be entirely within the Town of Niagara.

Project Location: The BFI facility, formerly Niagara Recycling, Inc., is located on Niagara Falls Boulevard in the City of Niagara Falls and in the Town of Niagara in Niagara County. The site is bounded by the NewYork State Thruway I-190 to the east and north, Packard Road to the north and west, the Niagara Junction Railroad to the west, and Niagara Falls Boulevard and a Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation right-of-way to the south.
