This proposal is for an amendment to Environmental Compliance Approval No. 8850 8V6S7Z (Waste Disposal Site) for the facility located at part of Lots 235 and 236, Concession 2 Southwest of the Toronto and Sydenham Road, Geographic Township of Proton, Township of Southgate, County of Grey. Lystek International (“Lystek”) is seeking approval for the following changes to their Environmental Compliance Approval for the waste disposal site:
- Modification of the sampling frequency of the treated waste in the reactors
- Acceptance of non hazardous liquid industrial waste for use as a feedstock
Lystek is requesting that an amendment be made to modify the monitoring frequency of the metal concentrations for the treated waste out of the reactors from weekly to monthly. Analysis/sampling frequency for pathogens (faecal coliform and salmonella) would remain weekly.
Lystek is requesting to permit acceptance of non hazardous liquid industrial waste at the Facility for processing, consisting primarily of liquid compost leachate. Acceptance of the liquid industrial waste will be in compliance with the receipt, storage, and processing requirements for liquid waste received at the Facility. This waste would be stored in the existing feedstock holding tanks. No changes to overall site capacity or processing amounts are proposed as part of this application.
Lystek currently operates an approved waste disposal site with a total area of 5.1 hectares
The site is currently used for processing of municipal waste including dewatered biosolids, septage and other liquid feedstocks.
The Site is approved to receive up to 900 tonnes of waste per day with an overall storage capacity of 1,225 tonnes of waste within the processing building and feedstock holding tanks, 2,400 cubic metres of waste within the storage lagoons and 90,000 cubic metres of treated waste, as defined in the Environmental Compliance Approval as waste which has completed the Company’s treatment process.
The facility is approved to operate 24 hours a day and 7 seven days a week with waste being received at the Site only between the hours of 6:00 am and 6:00 pm Monday through Friday and 7:00 am until noon on Saturdays.
