The landfill facility at near New York Mills has applied for a permit renewal. According to Kathleen Holland-Hanson with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency the landfill must apply for re-issuance of their permit every five years.
The facility handles municipal solid waste, demolition debris, recycling, and has a combustor ash land disposal facility to deal with waste from Perhams Resource Recovery incinerators. The landfill operates on a 151-acre parcel.
A re-issuance of the solid waste facility permit would include expansion of the Demo area. It would be developed in a total of five phases covering 10 acres. The Demo area is an unlined disposal area; the final cover will consist of two feet of compacted soil materials.
After a review of application materials, the Commissioner of the MPCA has made a preliminary determination to approve the application and issue the permit. The MPCA will mail a copy of the draft permit to an interested person upon request to Kathleen Holland-Hanson, MPCA, 714 Lake Avenue Suite 220, Detroit Lakes MN 56501.
The MPCA is inviting interested persons to submit comments regarding the pending application. Comments must be received by May 11, 2006 and should include the following:
A. a statement of the persons interest in the permit application or the draft permit;
B. a statement of the action the person wishes the agency to take, including specific references to sections of the draft permit that the person believes should be changed; and
C. the reasons supporting the persons position, stated with sufficient specificity as to allow the commissioner to investigate the merits of the persons positions.
Any submissions should display the public notice number 05-SW-1050 next to the address on the envelope and on each page of any submitted comments, and include a return mailing address and telephone number. Comments received will be made part of the public record.
