NYSDEC Rolls Out New Solid Waste Regulations

June 06, 2018 / Industry News

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) has published a new solid waste management regulation series, which took effect on November 4, 2017.  6 NYCRR Part 360-366 and 369 are the DEC’s solid waste management regulations that govern the reuse, recycling, transportation, and disposal of solid waste.  Some types of facilities that are affected by these new regulations include recyclable handling facilities, mulching and composting facilities, construction & demolition (“C&D”) debris handling facilities, municipal solid waste processing facilities, transfer facilities, landfills, and waste transporters.

In general, facilities that fall under the new Part 360 series regulations were required to comply with the regulations on May 3, 2018; however, certain facilities that fall under the Part 360 regulations, such as Construction and Demolition (C&D) facilities, may have until May 3, 2019 to comply with the some of the new regulations.

Contact PWGC with any Part 360 series regulations questions or concerns.  We understand the new Part 360 solid waste management regulations and how they can potentially impact both existing and new facilities.  We can provide site operators/owners with the necessary services to ensure that their sites are operating within the permitted use.  PWGC has been providing planning and permitting services to many Solid Waste Management facilities on Long Island for over twenty years.
