Bronx County

Applicant: Waste Management of New York LLC
123 Varick Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11237
Facility: Harlem River Yard Transfer Station
98 Lincoln Ave
Bronx, NY 10454
Application ID: 2-6007-00159/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Bronx, Bronx County
Project Description:
    
Modification of the physical plant and operation of an existing transfer station.  The facility’s current throughput capacity is 3,000 tons per day (TPD) putrescible solid waste (PSW) and construction and demolition debris (C&D).  The facility’s current storage capacity is 6,000 cubic yards (CY) PSW and C&D in the solid waste handling building, plus the PSW and C&D that can be stored in 92 railcars.  Pursuant to the subject proposal, the facility’s throughput capacity would increase to 4,000 TPD PSW and C&D, and the facility’s storage capacity in its solid waste handling building would increase to 16,000 CY of PSW and C&D.  The proposal includes no increase in the solid waste stored in rail cars.  The proposed increase in facility throughput capacity would increase facility traffic by 117 trucks per day.  To offset this, the Applicant proposes to close its 315 Barretto Street facility (DEC  No. 2-6007-00057/00001), which has a permitted capacity of 1,382 cubic yards per day (equivalent to 1,036.5 TPD) of uncontaminated masonry waste, asphalt, brick, soil, and rock.  Such closure would decrease potential traffic by up to 127 trucks per day.  The net result of the proposal would be a 10 truck per day decrease in potential traffic.  The proposed modification of the transfer station’s physical plant is limited to the addition of one loader and one forklift.
