CAYUGA—Brooks Road Environmental (BRE), owner of the landfill on Brooks Road in Cayuga, is seeking an amendment to its existing approval in order to increase the annual waste fill rate at the site.
BRE is looking to accept up to its maximum operational capacity of 1,000 tonnes per day for up to 250 days a year, compared to the current 151 days.
“This would increase the annual fill rate from 151,000 tonnes per year to 250,000 tonnes. This change to the annual fill rate will allow Brooks Road to capture additional wastes generated by customers and fill the site faster and reach the approved capacity sooner,” read the online open house by BRE. “The amendment does not affect or change the current approved landfill volume, footprint, or final contours.”
