DEM issues solid waste management licenses to RI Resource REcovery Corporation and JR Vinagro Corporation

PROVIDENCE – The Department of Environmental Management has
issued solid waste management facility licenses to the RI Resource
Recovery Corporation (RIRRC) for the Phase VI expansion of the
Central Landfill, and to JR Vinagro Corporation for a new
construction and demolition debris processing facility and transfer
station.

RIRRC applied for a solid waste landfill license to open and
operate the 103-acre Phase VI of the Central Landfill located at 65
Shun Pike in Johnston. The proposed Phase VI is located immediately
northeast of RIRRC’s existing solid waste management facility.
Phases I through III of the Central Landfill are closed, and Phases
IV and V are nearing capacity. The Phase VI area is expected to
provide 17.5 years of disposal capacity.

A public hearing was held on the RIRRC application on October
13, 2010. Comments from the public were received at the public
hearing and during the 30-day comment period. The Department of
Environmental Management reviewed and responded to all of the
comments received. The Department’s responses can be viewed online
on DEM’s website at
www.dem.ri.gov/programs/benviron/waste/topicsol.htm. As a result of
the review process, the Department has attached 21 operating
conditions to the RIRRC license.

JR Vinagro Corporation submitted a license application for a new
construction and demolition debris processing facility and transfer
station at its facility located at 116 Shun Pike in Johnston. The
new facility will accept up to 2,000 tons per day of construction
and demolition debris, in addition to up to 500 tons per day of
commercial solid waste at the transfer station.

A public hearing was held on JR Vinagro Corporation’s
application on October 15, 2010. All comments received at the
public hearing and during the public comment period were in support
of the facility. Therefore, the Department did not respond to any
of the comments. As a result of the review process, the Department
has attached 18 operating conditions to the JR Vinagro Corporation
license.

The license and associated license conditions for each facility
are available on DEM’s website at
