Clarion County transfer station OK’d by DEP
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has
approved the application from Veolia ES Solid Waste of Pennsylvania Inc.
to create a municipal waste transfer station in Paint Township, Clarion
The permit was issued following the department’s technical review of
Veolia’s application, which examined the design details of the project.
In February, DEP finalized the environmental assessment phase of the
review and concluded that the known benefits of the project outweigh
the known and potential harms.
A significant portion of the municipal waste to be handled at the proposed
transfer station would be generated locally. Veolia is requesting an
average daily volume permit capacity of 350 tons per day, with a maximum
daily volume of 500 tons per day.
Veolia submitted the transfer station application on April 6, 2006, and
a public meeting was held August 7, 2007 to review it.
The proposed location of the transfer station was previously a heavy
equipment maintenance facility operated by Beckwith Machine Company that
will be renovated to suit Veolia’s needs.
