Phase II Application – RCRA

In addition, hard copies of both the March 1, 2017, Phase II application and subsequent submissions are available for review at DEP’s Norristown Office, the Levittown Branch of the Bucks County Library (7311 New Falls Road, Levittown, Pennsylvania) and the Westampton Branch of the Burlington County Library (5 Pioneer Boulevard, Westampton, New Jersey).

Additional DEP Applications Under Review

On October 18, 2018, IES Engineers, on behalf of Elcon Recycling Services, submitted two additional applications to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for the proposed project in Falls Township, Bucks County. Additional permits and/or approvals may still be required. 

Air Quality Plan Approval Application

DEP will review the plan approval application for technical completeness and adequacy.  The review ensures that a facility will meet all applicable rules and regulations, as well as meeting the best available technology, for the air pollution sources and any associated air pollution control equipment.

After review. DEP generates a draft Plan Approval that would allow for the construction and temporary operation of the proposed sources and associated control equipment.  The draft contains specific conditions, including monitoring and recordkeeping, that will ensure the construction and operation of the air pollution sources and control equipment are operated in compliance with the applicable rules and regulations.

NPDES Stormwater General Permit Application

An NPDES (National Pollutants Discharge Elimination System) PAG-03 permit and best management practices are used to control stormwater runoff and pollution prevention. Following a completeness review, a technical review of the application will be conducted. This includes a site inspection and Pollution Prevention and Control Plan and proposed Best Management Practices review (if applicable). 


Announcements regarding DEP opportunities for public participation will be posted here.

Comments will be accepted throughout the duration of the application review. However, only comments received within a published comment period will be responded to in a final comment response document. Please send all comments to the project resource account: RA-EPHWELCON@PA.GOV
