WHO MADE THESE CRAZY RULES? Solid Waste Planning And Recycling Workshop June 5-6, 2014 To Protect and Enhance Kentucky’s Environment
Division of Waste Management 2013 Construction Project Jessamine County – Billy Glover Landfill –Consolidated waste –Placed cap
Division of Waste Management 2014 - 2015 Projects Butler County – City of Bowling Green Landfill –Construction will begin this summer Montgomery County - Mt. Sterling Landfill –Conducting additional site assessment Trigg County Landfill –Developing closure plans Mercer County Landfill –Developing conceptual design for leachate collection Shelby County – Waddy Landfill –Repaired cap in 2013

Division of Waste Management How do I get rid of ___? Appliances Diabetic needles Paint Dead animals Tires Cardboard boxes Food waste Used oil Outdated pharmaceuticals Batteries Fill in the blank!!
Division of Waste Management Wastes Are Not Created Equal Anything that is discarded or intended to be discarded –residential, commercial, institutional, industrial, municipal
Division of Waste Management Step by Step Type of waste – solid or special? Quantity of waste - < 100 tires, etc? How and where was waste generated? Will it be used as a substitute for another material? Will it be recycled? Can it be burned for energy?
Division of Waste Management Solid Waste Solid Waste defined by KRS 224.01-010 –Solid, liquid, gas, or semi-solid –Garbage –Refuse –Sludge –Agriculture –Other discarded materials Pass laboratory analysis for toxicity – TCLP Pass paint filter test for free liquids Asbestos is unique
Division of Waste Management Special Waste Special Waste defined by KRS 224.50-760 –Waste of high volume and low hazard –Other wastes designated by Cabinet after testing to demonstrate low hazard.
Division of Waste Management Disposal Options
Division of Waste Management Types of Permits Permit-by-rule Registered permit-by-rule Formal permit Special permit Waste tire registration Petroleum contaminated soil permit
Division of Waste Management Permit-by-Rule (aka PBR) Beneficial reuse of solid waste Construction/demolition waste disposed on property Land clearing debris disposed on property Less than 100 tires, or less than ¼ acre of shredded tires Sawdust piles and waste piles Automobile and truck recyclers and salvage yards Asphalt residue Wastes from immediate response or spills Exclusions for agriculture operations Wastes from oil and gas operations Wastes from mining operations Impoundments and injection wells with KPDES permit
Division of Waste Management Registered Permit-by-Rule (aka RPBR) Construction/demolition debris landfill < 1 acre Beneficial reuse of special waste Recycling center Transfer station Convenience center Sludge giveaway Composting Solid waste incinerator > 1 ton/day Landfarming Class I sludges Landfarming Type A and B sludges Storage and treatment of special waste for distribution
Division of Waste Management Formal Permits Contained landfill – residential, commercial, institutional, industrial, and municipal wastes, shredded tires, household hazardous waste, limited quantity generator hazardous waste, asbestos, and spill cleanup residue. (29 in KY) Construction/Demolition Debris landfill - bricks, shredded tires, concrete, soil, rock, wood, wall coverings, plaster, drywall, plumbing fixtures, tree stumps, limbs, sawdust, leaves, yard waste, paper products, metals, furniture, insulation, roofing shingles, asphaltic pavement, glass, plastics, electrical wiring, and other inert waste approved by cabinet. (11 in KY) Residual landfill – industrial wastes, sludges, special wastes, residues from air and water pollution control devices, and residues from energy generation which are codisposed in a mining operation. (21 in KY) Special waste landfill – fly ash, bottom ash, scrubber sludge, vitrified coarse solid residue, prilled or blocked sulfur, mining wastes, utility wastes, water and wastewater treatment sludges, cement kiln dust, gas and oil drilling muds, and oil production brines. (10 in KY)
Division of Waste Management Special Permits Emergency permit – short term storage of waste from storm, flood, or other emergency that causes imminent danger to human health or the environment. Research, Development and Demonstration permit – treatment or disposal facility using innovative and experimental technology to demonstrate unproven technology. Waste Tire registration – transporters, accumulators, and processors. Petroleum contaminated soil facility – a facility where soil is treated to reduce hydrocarbon concentrations to an accepted regulatory level. 401 KAR 48:205 Section 6 Table 3. Petroleum-contaminated Soil Treatment Standards Benzene0.01 ppm Toluene0.7 ppm Ethylbenzene0.9 ppm Xylene5.0 ppm Chrysene15 ppm Benzo(k)fluoranthene0.3 ppm Dibenzo(a,h)anthracene0.015 ppm Indeno(1,2,3-cd)pyrene0.15 ppm Anthracene10 ppm Benzo(ghi)perylene10 ppm Fluoranthene10 ppm Fluorene10 ppm Phenanthrene10 ppm Pyrene10 ppm Naphthalene3.6 ppm Methyl-tert-butylether (MTBE)0.2 ppm Lead400 ppm Arsenic9.4 ppm Cadmium0.78 ppm Chromium21.3 ppm Copper28.0 ppm Mercury0.07 ppm Nickel21.7 ppm Selenium0.99 ppm Zinc57 ppm
