Facility: SAFETY-KLEEN Systems Inc - Dewitt Facility
6741 Vip Pkwy
Dewitt, NY 13211
Application ID: 7-3126-00134/00016
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 TItle 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
Project is Located: Dewitt, Onondaga County
Project Description:
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has reviewed the hazardous waste management permit  application from Safety Kleen Systems, Inc. for renewal of its hazardous waste management Part 373 permit. The Department has made a tentative determination to renew  the 6NYCRR Part 373 Permit to continue its authorization to operate the hazardous waste storage facility.
Safety Kleen Systems, Inc., located at 6741 VIP Parkway in the Town of DeWitt, is a solvent distributor and recycler (reclaimer). Its customers are primarily engaged in automotive repair, industrial maintenance and dry cleaning.  The company offers spent solvent collection and reclamation. The facility operates under the state  6 NYCRR Part 373 hazardous waste management permit issued on July 19, 2000. The permit was due to expire on July 19, 2005, but Safety Kleen applied for permit renewal on January 7, 2005, so the
existing permit will be extended pursuant to the State Administrative Procedures Act, Section 401(2), until the Department makes a determination on the renewal application. The area is zoned for commercial use and the facility is located in a business/industrial park.  The majority of this facility's customers generate less than 1000 kg (2200 lbs.) per month of hazardous waste. Wastes managed by Safety Kleen Systems are transported in its transport vehicles to one of Safety Kleen’s Recycle/Process Centers or to contract reclaimers located outside New York State. The recovered solvents are returned to customers as usable product.

Safety Kleen Systems also store hazardous wastes for less than 10 days incidental to transportation. This incidental storage is exempt from the hazardous waste regulations and regulated under the Code of Federal Regulations Title 49 pertaining to Hazardous Materials Transportation. However, such storage is limited to 10 days or less.

The recyclable waste solvents generated by the Parts Washer Services, which is the primary business of the facility, will be collected by Safety Kleen’s own transport vehicles and stored in the permitted tank prior to transportation to the Recycle centers in tanker trucks. Containerized spent parts washer solvent routed to the facility will remain on the transport vehicles for a limited time prior to it being transferred into the bulk storage tank through the fully enclosed Return and Fill station or stored on the permitted staging/storage area that is located at the Return and Fill platform.  Safety Kleen stores in the permitted storage tank three types of spent cleaning solvents: ignitable solvents, water-based solvents and solvents with a high flash point which are not classified as ignitable under the Department regulations.  All these wastes are commingled in the tank and managed as a hazardous waste.  All ignitable wastes at the facility will be stored 50 feet from the facility property line.  EPA I. D. No: NYD 982 743 312
