Bond Road Landfill Requesting Authorization to Increase Maximum Daily Waste Receipts

Ohio EPA Hosting Virtual Public Meeting on April 12 

Ohio EPA will hold a virtual public meeting at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12, 2022, to discuss and take comments on a draft permit that would increase the amount of daily waste Bond Road Landfill is allowed to accept.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. with the Agency giving a short presentation about the permitting process and the draft permit, then answering questions from the public. A hearing will immediately follow, allowing the public to submit written comments on the record about the draft permit. Citizens who want to participate must register in advance for the hearing.

Bond Road Landfill is located at 11425 Bond Road, Harrison. The 575-acre site straddles the Ohio-Indiana border in southwest Hamilton County. If approved, the permit would allow the landfill to accept up to 1,500 tons of waste per day. The current limit is 100 tons a day. At 1,500 tons per day, the landfill would have a lifespan of approximately 12.8 years.

If approved, this increase will be below the landfill’s originally permitted daily waste receipts limit of 4,000 tons per day.

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 draft permit 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 epa.dmwmcomments@epa.ohio.gov. The public comment period ends on May 4.

The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency was created in 1972 to consolidate efforts to protect and improve air quality, water quality and waste management in Ohio. Since then, air pollutants dropped by as much as 90 percent; large rivers meeting standards improved from 21 percent to 89 percent; and hundreds of polluting, open dumps were replaced with engineered landfills and an increased emphasis on waste reduction and recycling.
