Xerox Corporation - Webster, NY, Monroe County - Closure Plan for SWMU #67 W343 Drum Storage Area

Notice is hereby given that the Xerox - Webster NY facility (Xerox) (EPA Identification Number NYD002211324) has applied to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) under the provisions of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and 6NYCRR Part 373-2 for closure of a hazardous waste storage unit at the SWMU #67 W343 Drum Storage Area. The SWMU #67 W343 Drum Storage Area closure plan was reviewed by NYS DEC staff and comments were provided to Xerox on August 1, 2021. Xerox responded to NYS DEC comments on August 16, 2021.

The intention of this public notice is to solicit comment from the public on the SWMU #67 W343 Drum Storage Area closure plan. The applicant's closure plan details the steps that will be taken to close the hazardous waste management unit.

A copy of the closure plan, inclusive of Xerox's response to comments, is available for public review at NYS DEC Central Office. Copies of the closure plan may be obtained by contacting Lynn Winterberger, NYS DEC - Division of Materials Management, RCRA Permitting Section, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-7256, Phone: (518) 402-8651.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.
