Broome County

Applicant: American Rendering Co Inc
2947 Webb Rd
Binghamton, NY 13903 -5523
Facility: American Rendering Co Inc
2947 Webb Road
Binghamton, NY 13903
Application ID: 7-0322-00004/00004
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Binghamton, Broome County
Project Description:
The applicant operates a rendering facility on Webb Road, Town of Binghamton, Broome County.  Although American rendering is an existing facility that has historically been authorized by permit to landspread wastes generated at the facility (waste waters and bio-solids), regulatory changes have necessitated that American Rendering seek new authorizations for these activities. Due to the regulatory changes, American Rendering is required to obtain two new permits; one for the landspreading of the bio-solids and one for the discharge of the wastewaters.  This notice is an indication that the Department has determined that the application materials associated with the proposed continued landspreading operation are complete and are available for public review and comment.  American Rendering generates approximately 25,000 gallons per year of bio-solids.  Under the proposal, landspreading would be authorized from May 1 - December 1. During other times of the year bio-solids would be disposed of utilizing a scavenger (the ultimate disposal location would be a sanitary wastewater sewage treatment plant).  Approximately 10 acres are available for landspreading; the applicant proposes to use eight acres of the total available.  American Rendering estimates that less than 2,000 gallons per acre, per year, will be landspread.  The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application. American Rendering’s application for the discharge of wastewaters is not yet complete.  A separate public notice will be published at a later date
