New Tire Facility Proposal Considered in Denver
Denver, CO— The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has been asked by the Sedgwick County Commissioners to review an application for a certificate of designation for the proposed Sedgwick County Tire Facility, which would be located approximately three miles southwest of Julesburg.
The construction of the new tire facility has been proposed by Resources Management Company, which has operated a permitted scrap tire facility and tire landfill in Ness, Kansas, since July 1990. Resources Management Company holds all current Kansas permits from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to transport, process, mobile process and dispose of tires.
The plan for the Colorado facility addresses citing criteria, design, construction, operations and eventual closure of a 112-acre site, which is being designed for use for shredding, cutting, grinding, baling and disposal of automobile, truck and tractor tires.
The Department of Public Health and Environment’s Hazardous Materials and Waste Management Division is reviewing the application for technical merit, for compliance with the state’s solid waste regulations and to assure that the facility’s operations will not negatively impact human health or the environment. The department will send its findings to the Sedgwick County Commissioners, who will approve or deny the application.
