Description of Services:The facility disposes nonhazardous waste in the onsite landfill. Suitable waste was also used as alternative daily cover (the landfill has permission from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation—NYSDEC--to use particular industrial wastes, such as petroleum-contaminated soil, as alternative daily cover). This alternative cover does not count against the facility annual permitted tonnage limit for incoming waste; this cover also takes the place of virgin soil that would otherwise have been used for the same purpose. There are no TPH or BTEX limits on the petroleum-contaminated soil used for cover; however, the soil must not be hazardous by characteristic.

In 2009, about 75% of the waste disposed of in the landfill was municipal solid waste (MSW), and another 20% was similar trash from industrial (non-residential) generators. The remaining 5% was primarily sludge from municipal wastewater treatment plants. A small volume of asbestos was also disposed of onsite. All of the incoming waste is deposited directly into the landfill; there is no onsite pre-treatment of waste.
