Facility: Solvents & Petroleum Service
1405 Brewerton Rd
Salina, NY 13208
Application ID: 7-3148-00021/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 TItle 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
Project is Located: Salina, Onondaga County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination  to renew this 6 NYCRR Part 373 Permit.
Solvents and Petroleum Services, Inc. (SPS) is located near Syracuse in the Town of Salina, New York, at 1405, Brewerton Road.  The facility is located near the intersection of the New York Thruway and Interstate 81. SPS is a distributer of hydrocarbon solvents and supplies to industries in the Central New York.  The facility has been in operation from November 1979 as a solvent distributor and as a storage facility for spent solvents classified as hazardous waste by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.  The spent solvents accepted by SPS are generated from the solvents supplied by SPS. This is a commercial hazardous waste storage facility which has a container storage capacity of 14,300 gallons of spent solvents. The wastes are stored inside a roofed building provided with a welded steel secondary containment.  SPS also consolidate wastes received from conditionally exempt small quantity generators and partially filled drum of the same waste from the same generators for transportation efficiency. Occasionally, SPS receives drummed wastes for direct shipments through the facility. These drums contain the same waste numbers the facility currently receives and the drums are stored in the drum washing area provided with a secondary containment. The secondary containment for the direct shipment waste consists of a portable tray that can hold up to four 55-gallon containers. The direct shipments are on active shipping papers exempted from the DEC regulations.  These are stored less than 10 days at the facility.
No on-site processing or disposal of hazardous wastes occurs at this facility.
The current permit was issued on July 20, 1999 by the Department. The permit’s term ended on  July 19, 2004.  However, SPS submitted the renewal application as required in 6 NYCRR 373-1.8.  Under the provisions of State Administrative Procedures Act Section 401(2), when an “applicant has made a timely and sufficient application for the renewal of their permit, the existing permit does not expire until the application has been finally determined by the agency.”  SPS  submitted a timely and sufficient renewal application. Therefore, SPS’s Permit is extended until the Department makes a final decision on the renewal application submitted by SPS.  As such, SPS has been continually regulated by the Department under its SAPA-extended permit.

The draft permit, the application and fact sheet are available for public review during normal business hours at:  New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Environmental Permits, 615 Erie Boulevard West, Syracuse, NY 13204-2400.
