SMITH COUNTY CLASS I LANDFILL PLANS 9.2-ACRE LATERAL EXPANSION The Smith County Government has applied to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), Division of Solid Waste Management (DSWM), for a solid waste disposal facility permit modification to construct and operate a 9.2-acre lateral expansion of the existing Smith County Class I Landfill (SNL800000227). Independent of this expansion, TDEC will be receiving public comment for a smaller 2.4-acre lateral expansion under a separate public notice. The facility is located in Smith County, at 370 Landfill Road, Carthage, Tennessee (latitude 36.2681° N/longitude 85.9402° W). The waste materials to be accepted are classified as domestic wastes, commercial wastes, institutional wastes, municipal solid wastes, bulky wastes, landscaping and land clearing wastes, industrial wastes, construction/demolition wastes, farming wastes, shredded automotive tires, dead animals, special wastes, and/or certain wastes having similar characteristics and approved in writing by TDEC. Under State law, the applicant must obtain a modification of the existing permit before constructing or operating the proposed facility expansion. DSWM has received a Part I Permit Application indicating Smith County’s desire to obtain the required major permit modification. A complete permit application consists of both a Part I and a PartII, as described in Regulations Governing Solid Waste Processing and Disposal Facilities in Tennessee, Rule 0400-11- 01-.02(3)(c). When  the facility submits the complete Part II application, DSWM will do an in-depth review to determine if the application meets the technical standards of the Regulations described in Tennessee Rule 0400-11-01-.04(9), Solid Waste Processing and Disposal. Once the technical review is completed, DSWM will make a tentative decision to either grant or deny the permit and will issue a public notice. This second notice will provide the public with at least 45 days to submit written comments on the proposed action. If there is a significant degree of public interest, DSWM will schedule a public hearing and give at least 15 days’ notice. (A public hearing may be announced in the second notice if DSWM is already aware of significant public interest.) After considering all comments received, the DSWM Director shall issue a final permit decision and a response to comments. For further information on this matter, contact the DSWM at the TDEC Cookeville Environmental Field Office, 1221 South Willow Avenue, Cookeville, TN 38506 (931-520-6688), or Jeff Mason, Smith County Mayor, 122 Turner High Circle, Carthage, TN 37030 or (615-735-2294).

TDEC does not unlawfully discriminate on any basis prohibited by applicable law in any of its programs, services, or activities.
