Applicant: Humpf Sanitation LLC
414 Trenton Ave
Utica, NY 13502
Facility: Humpf Transfer Station
151 West St
Newport, NY 13416
Application ID: 6-2138-00006/00005
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Herkimer County
Project Description:
This application was previously noticed as having a service area encompassing 8 counties in a 150 mile radius service area. The correct number of counties is 34, all other information remains the same. The applicant proposes to construct and operate a combination facility consisting of a transfer station and Construction and Demolition (C&D) processing center on a 21 acre site located at the intersection of Honey Hill Road and West Street. The main process building will handle construction and demolition debris from 34counties all located within a 150 mile radius of the facility.  The C&D debris will be shredded and processed for use as Alternate Daily Cover (ADC) for landfills.  A new 12,000 square foot metal building will be the main C&D processing building.  A grinder with a 200 tons per hour capacity  will be used to pulverize the C&D. Operation of the grinder will take place Monday through Friday between 8:00AM and 4:00PM intermittently.   The proposed design capacity of the facility is 28,600 tons of C&D debris annually. The anticipated daily traffic flow for inbound C&D debris is 10 to 20 trucks.  The outbound traffic flow may be up to 11 trucks per week.  This facility currently has a small rural transfer station permit and will continue  transferring locally generated putrescible waste and recyclables.   As part of the application, the applicant has requested a  "cap-by-rule" air registration, which means they have agreed to federally enforceable conditions in their registration that would require them to stay below the 50% major threshold of air emissions (ie. Title V Permit).  The combination facility's hours of operation are from 6:00AM until 6:00PM Monday through Saturday.
