The Blythe Recycling and Demolition Site (BRADS) in Blythe Township, Schuylkill County has applied to the PA Department of Environmental Protection for a renewal of its operating permit. The renewal application requests that DEP allow BRADS to continue accepting construction/ demolition waste, that may include non-friable asbestos waste, for an additional 10 years.
Second Environmental Assessment Letter (tonnage increase)
DEP has determined that BRADS has demonstrated that the benefits to the public from the project clearly outweigh the known and potential harms posed by it. DEP will now proceed with the technical review of the application.
Landfill has submitted a permit application to increase its daily maximum tonnage/daily average tonnage from 1500 tons to 3000 tons per day.
