DEP Issues Permits For Camp Hope Run Landfill In Clearfield County
On January 28, the Department of Environmental Protection announced it has issued permits to PA Waste LLC for the construction of the new Camp Hope Run Landfill-- a 5,000 tons-per-day, double-lined, municipal waste landfill in Boggs Township, Clearfield County.
“DEP has conducted a thorough review of permits required for this facility, considering substantial public comment in the process,” said Marcus Kohl, director of DEP’s Northcentral Regional Office. “After determining that all requirements have been met and assuring that the required bonding is in place, we have issued the permits necessary through our Waste Management and Waterways and Wetlands programs for construction of the facility.”
The Municipal Waste Permit requires that the facility be constructed and begin operation within five years of the date of issuance, or the permit will be voided.
In addition, DEP continues to perform technical review on other permits, which must be obtained prior to construction of the facility.
The proposed landfill and supporting facilities will be located within an 845-acre facility about seven miles southeast of Clearfield, along the west side of State Route 153. The waste disposal limits will encompass about 217 acres, with support facilities and buffer areas within the remainder of the overall facility boundary.
PA Waste LLC submitted the Phase I Waste Management Application to DEP on June 30, 2017, and the Phase II application on February 26, 2018. A public hearing was held on July 23, 2018.
