Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County
Project Description:
      Dyal Carting  has applied for a Part 360 permit to construct a proposed 22,600 square foot building on 8 acres in order to operate a Solid Waste Transfer Station for Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris and for land clearing wastes, at the daily maximum rate of 600 tons per day.  The facility would be prohibited from accepting tires or putrescible wastes, such as household garbage.
     OPERATIONS:   All C&D debris will be  off-loaded on to a tipping floor inside the building, sorted to retrieve recyclables (such as metals), and loaded into long haul trucks for disposal at a landfill.  All land clearing debris (such as trees, stumps, etc.) will be temporarily stored in piles until sufficient volume is available to bring a grinder to the site.  Use of the grinder would be limited to only daytime operating hours and only inside the transfer station building.  The ground wood waste would be shipped off-site for reuse or resale.
      HOURS:   Dyal Carting is asking to be able to accept waste between the hours of 7:30 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., on Mondays through Fridays and between 10:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. on Saturdays.  They also ask to be allowed to continue waste processing inside the building possibly up to 11:00 P.M., Monday through Saturday, in order to complete the sorting and loading trucks.  During these extended hours, fully loaded trucks and trailers could be picked up at the facility for shipment off-site, provided no other solid waste activity takes place outside the building, and that a log of such shipments is maintained at the facility.
        DAYS:   Receipt, delivery or any other handling of solid waste would be prohibited on Sundays and on the following six State Holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day (July 4th), Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
        The applicant has also completed a Stormwater SPDES Pollution Prevention Plan to control stormwater runoff during and after construction.  The proposed Transfer Station would be located at 20-26 Tucker Drive, approximately one-quarter mile south of Van Wagner Road, in the Town of Poughkeepsie, in Dutchess County,  NY.
