DELANO, MN A review period is underway for a permit application submitted by Randy’s Sanitation in Delano.
The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) received an application from Randy’s for the modification of the MPCA solid waste permit for its transfer station facility.
The facility has been permitted by the MPCA to operate as a solid waste transfer station since February 2001. With the current application, Randy’s is proposing to increase the permitted thoroughput capacity, according to the MPCA. The facility is located on a two-acre site in the City of Delano.
The modification would authorize acceptance of up to 125,000 tons per year (550 tons per day) of mixed municipal solid waste, which includes source-separated organic materials, industrial solid waste, as outlined in the approved industrial solid waste management plan, and construction and demolition debris.
The increase in capacity requires an environmental assessment worksheet be completed, which is available for public comment.
If this permit request is approved, it will allow the proposed operation for a five-year period.
