8.
The proposed facility will be located in
County.
9.
The total property consists of
acres and lies in the following topographic sections:
Section
Township
Range
10.
The actual area for the composting and storage operation (excluding buffer zones and other
unused areas) consists of
acres.
11.
Attach a United States Geological Survey (USGS) topographic quadrangle map of the area
which outlines the property boundaries of the site and the approximate composting area
within the property boundary. The map may be a high quality photocopy.
12.
Attach a site map, drawn to scale, showing the property boundaries, composting area, buffer
distances to the property lines, waste unloading area, roads, storage areas for waste, compost,
residuals, and other physical characteristics of the site.
2
Is the buffer zone to the property line less than 200 feet on any side?
yes
no
If yes, attach a documentation of compliance with Section III.T. of the state regulations.
13.
Attach a property owners map indicating the immediately adjacent landowners to the site and
a list of the complete names and addresses of these landowners.
Part 3. Local Government Regulation/Solid Waste Management Plans
14.
Attach a letter from the appropriate County or City official confirming that the siting of the
proposed facility will be in conformance with all local laws, regulations, and ordinances, or
that no such laws, regulations, or ordinances are applicable.
15.
The proposed facility must be consistent with the approved local solid waste management
plan, as submitted to the Department by the local solid waste management authority. Attach
a copy of the page(s) of the plan which recognizes the operation of this facility. The
Department should be contacted prior to addressing this item.
Part 4. Demonstration of Need
Section 17-17-229, Mississippi Code Annotated, requires each permit application to contain a
demonstration of need which shall include the items in italics below. This may be achieved by
answering questions in items 16 - 18 below:
16.
Verification that the facility for which the permit is sought meets the twenty-year capacity
needs identified in the county or regional nonhazardous solid waste management plan which
shall take into account the quantities of municipal solid waste generated and the design
capacities of existing facilities.
If the proposed facility is included in and consistent with the local solid waste management
plan, then the facility meets the twenty-year capacity needs. Is the proposed facility included
in and consistent with the local solid waste management plan?
yes
no. If not,
provide explanations on an attached sheet.
17.
Demonstration that the host jurisdiction and the jurisdiction generating the solid waste
destined for the applicant's facility are actively involved in, and have a strategy for meeting
the statewide waste minimization goal.
Certification that the proposed service area of the facility is consistent with a local
nonhazardous solid waste management plan.
Every approved local solid waste management plan has an approved waste minimization
strategy included in the plan. If the jurisdiction (excluding out-of state jurisdictions)
generating the solid waste destined for the facility (the proposed service area) has an
approved local solid waste management plan, the first requirement above is met. The service
area for the proposed facility must be consistent with the service area as specified in the
approved local solid waste management plan for this facility. List below the service area of
3
the facility (by city, county and/or state):
18.
The extent to which the proposed facility is needed to replace other facilities.
Many of the state's landfills were forced to close in 1993 and 1994 due to the Subtitle D
regulations. Disposal at the remaining landfills became more expensive and in most cases,
involved a long haul out of the county. As a result, it has become economically and
environmentally advantageous to find alternate or supplemental disposal/management
methods for solid waste and rubbish waste. Is this situation representative for your facility?
yes
no. If not, provide on an attached sheet a description of the extent to which the
proposed facility is needed to replace other facilities.
Part 5. Plan of Operation
19.
Attach a list of the type, description, and characteristics of the wastes to be composted, and
an estimate of the quantities (in tons/day) of wastes expected to be managed at the proposed
facility.
20.
Attach a list of the anticipated sources of the wastes.
21.
Include a description and estimated quantities of any bulking agents that would be mixed
with the proposed waste stream for composting.
22.
a.
Attach engineering drawings and specifications, showing the boundaries of the
property and composting area, buffer distances to the property lines, waste unloading
area, receiving area, composting area, curing area, roads, storage areas for waste,
compost and residuals and other physical characteristics of the site. In addition,
engineering detail drawings should be provided for the composting operation, surface
water control features and storage areas.
b.
Include engineering detail drawings (plan and profile) of the structures for the
proposed composting facility to include construction type (metal, wood, etc.), any
open side, and maximum storage capacity.
23.
Attach a plan of operation, at a minimum, to include the following items:
a.
A list of the individual(s) responsible for making the decisions critical to the
composting process such as turning, wetting, screening, etc. They should have
knowledge of the biological process at work and the expertise and the knowledge
capable of operating the facility in compliance with state regulations and
requirements.
4
b.
Plans for prohibiting unauthorized wastes from entering the facility. The placement
of a waste receptacle shall normally be required for the disposal of unauthorized
wastes.
c.
A narrative description of the operation from the point of waste unloading, through
all steps of the composting operation, to the point of compost distribution. The plan
must show that all waste delivered to the facility will be confined to a designated
delivery or receiving area, processed within 72 hours or removed and be disposed of
at another appropriate facility. The receiving area and the composting area must be
covered with a roof capable of preventing rainfall from directly contacting the waste
or compost. Final curing areas are not required to be roofed.
d.
Plan for fire prevention and actions to be taken in the event of an accidental fire.
e.
A description of the site security and monitoring provisions at the site (e.g., gates,
perimeter fences, enclosed buildings, etc.). The plan must indicate that an attendant
will be onsite at all times access to the site is unsecured.
f.
Plan for odor prevention.
g.
A description of the type of residuals and recyclables expected to be generated and
how each will be stored and managed.
h.
A description of surface water control features, including run-on, run-off, leachate
control systems and measures to prevent any washing or escape of waste from the
property. Washdown water, leachate and any other contaminated water generated in
the facility other than domestic wastewater shall be directed to sumps for use within
the process. No discharge of contaminated water shall occur unless specifically
allowed by the issuance of a wastewater permit.
i.
Plans for installation of a sign to identify the site.
j.
The design and performance specifications of the principal components of the facility,
such as shredders, separating equipment, aeration devices, screens, composting pads,
curing areas, leachate recirculation systems, etc.
k.
Procedures for obtaining weight or volume measurements of waste entering the
facility, any waste quantities removed as being unacceptable, quantities and qualities
of compost produced, and quantities removed from the facility. Also provide
discussion of record keeping.
l.
An estimate of the maximum storage capacity for all areas where waste, compost,
residuals and recyclables will be stored. Also provide maximum length of storage
for recyclables and residuals.
