This NYCBP panel will provide you with the new playbook for characterizing, transporting, and disposing of fill from your project.
The Metro New York City construction market is in full swing, driven by a robust growth in real estate development and capital infrastructure and transportation projects. Off-site disposal of surplus excavated fill not only represents a significant budgetary liability in terms of construction costs, but also a huge environmental liability if not handled correctly. The complex regulatory framework that guides decisions for regulated fill disposal has created a widely misunderstood arena for project stakeholders. And new changes are here.
In a dramatic rethinking of the way New York handles solid waste and beneficial use opportunities, NYSDEC has revised the 6 NYCRR Part 360 Solid Waste Regulation for the first time in over 20 years. The new rules provide new tools to efficiently and cheaply reuse excavated fill material on local projects, creating massive opportunities for project owners and contractors. Will include presentation of the current planned updates and changes to the regulations expected to come out in June 2019.
Currently, the majority of surplus fill generated in NYC is trucked out-of-state to New Jersey or Pennsylvania for beneficial reuse projects such as brownfield capping or mine reclamation. And while New York rolls out the new Part 360 regulations, these two states have also pushed through significant changes to their own beneficial reuse and characterization rules that will further impact the NYC fill market.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Construction managers, design teams and sustainability designers as well as anyone tasked with the implementation of infrastructure design, environmental consultants involved in green remediation, capital construction and sustainable options for material reuse.
Kevin McCarty, NYCBP Board member and a senior consultant with GEI Consultants, Inc., P.C.. Kevin has dedicated a significant part of his career to the management and reuse of these materials, and he will discuss how changes to the NYS 360 regulations changes are intended to work.
Joel Rogers, NYCBP Advisory Board member and founder of Factor Engineers. Joel has extensive experience managing fill and solid waste, not only in the Metro NYC area, but also in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Joel will discuss beneficial use of fill material sent across state lines, and related new NJ and PA rules that will impact how things are done in NYC.
Joel and Kevin will lead an audience discussion in a comparing and contrasting how the new rules work, and how they would benefit from a coordinated approach.
