DEP TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETING ON PROPOSED RAILROAD TRANSFER STATION AT MCKEAN COUNTY LANDFILL

Applicant Proposes to Bring Waste to Landfill by Rail

MEADVILLE – The Department of Environmental Protection will host a public meeting at 6 p.m., on Wednesday, Nov. 19, on an application by Rustick LLC for a rail line and a railroad waste transfer station at the McKean County Landfill in Sargeant Township.

The permit application pertains to Rustick’s plans to construct and operate a rail transfer facility that would receive 5,000 tons of municipal waste per day for disposal at the landfill.

The meeting will be held at the Sargeant Township Municipal Building, 14183 Wilcox Road, Mount Jewett.

During the public meeting, representatives of the company will provide information about the proposed rail project, and DEP staff will be on hand to explain the permitting process and collect public input on the application.

The existing landfill permit was modified in August 2006 to allow for the construction and operation of a small railroad siding within the landfill in order to receive waste by rail. The siding has not yet been built.

The current proposal would remove the siding area from the landfill area and include it as part of the separate and much larger transfer station permit. The new rail transfer station application is part of Rustick’s overall business plan for the site, which includes a major expansion.

Rustick has submitted a separate application to expand the permitted landfill by 336 acres, with 204 acres being used as a new disposal area.

According to the application, the landfill would limit the amount of waste arriving at the facility to 6,000 tons per day — 1,000 tons by truck and 5,000 tons by rail.

DEP received Rustick’s application on April 11. The permit application is available for the public to review at DEP’s northwest regional office in Meadville, the Sargeant Township municipal office, and the McKean County commissioners’ office.

Individuals who would like to attend the public meeting and are in need of accommodations as provided for in the Americans with Disabilities Act should contact DEP Community Relations Coordinator Freda Tarbell at 814-332-6816 or through the Pennsylvania AT&T Relay Service at 1-800-654-5984 (TDD).
