MAX Environmental Technologies, Inc. – Yukon Facility

Proposed Hazardous Waste Landfill No. 7

Site background

Located in: South Huntingdon Township, Westmoreland County
MAX Environmental Technologies, Inc. currently operates under residual solid waste permit No. 301071. This permit, originally issued to Mill Service, Inc. in 1986, authorizes the acceptance, processing (as described in the Waste Analysis and Classification Plan), and disposal of residual wastes into Impoundment No. 6 at its Yukon facility.

MAX also operates under hazardous waste permit No. PAD004835146 at the same location. This permit, originally issued to Mill Service, Inc. in 1992, authorizes treatment and storage of hazardous wastes as described in the Waste Analysis Plan. Hazardous wastes approved of in the Waste Analysis Plan are solidified, stabilized, and tested to show that they are no longer hazardous prior to disposal in the residual waste impoundment.

MAX has submitted the first phase of its application for a modification of its existing hazardous waste disposal and treatment permit at its Yukon facility (Permit No. PAD004835146) that will allow for disposal of hazardous waste at a new Landfill No. 7.
