http://www.wasterecyclingnews.com/articl...in-pennsylvaniaPennsylvania is considering a proposal to construct a new municipal solid waste landfill near Clearfield.
PA Waste LLC wants to construct the proposed Camp Hope Run landfill on a parcel totaling 2,000 acres that would include a disposal area of 850 acres, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
The site would accept up to 5,000 tons per day and have capacity for 25 years, the DEP said.
PA Waste LLC previously submitted an application to construct the site in 2006, but the DEP denied that permit request "based on deficiencies in its site suitability analysis," the DEP said. That decision was appealed to the state Environmental Hearing Board, which sided with the landfill and sent the case back to the DEP, the agency said.
The proposed landfill is about seven miles south of Clearfield in Boggs Township, Clearfield County, the DEP said. Clearfield is located about 110 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
