Public Meeting to Discuss Noble Road Landfill’s Proposed Expansion
Information Session, Public Hearing Scheduled Feb. 14
Ohio EPA will hold a public information session at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019, to discuss a draft permit for the proposed expansion of Noble Road Landfill that, if approved, would increase the life of the landfill to approximately 24 years.
The meeting will be at Greenwich Council Chambers, 45 Main St. An information session will begin at 6 p.m. with a public hearing immediately following during which the public can submit comments on the record about the draft expansion permit.
Rumpke of Northern Ohio owns the municipal solid waste landfill located at 170 Noble Road East, Shiloh, and is the applicant for the expansion. The proposed expansion includes both a lateral and vertical expansion. The proposal would expand the landfill by 84.7 acres, adding approximately 18 million cubic yards of space.
Currently, the landfill receives approximately 3,600 tons of waste per day and is permitted to accept up to 6,000 tons a day.
During the information session, Ohio EPA staff will explain the permitting process and provide an overview of the permit application. The Agency will respond to questions about the proposed expansion.
Ohio EPA values public input. Anyone may submit comments and/or request to be on a mailing list to receive notice regarding further action on the expansion application by writing to: Ohio EPA, Division of Materials and Waste Management, P.O. Box 1049, Columbus, Ohio 43216, attention Brian Dearth, or by email to email@example.com. The public comment period ends Feb. 21.
