Landfill files Southeast Realignment plans

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Bethlehem Landfill has filed an application for the Southeast Realignment major permit modification with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and sent notification to Lower Saucon Township.

The permit would add an estimated five years to the site’s operations. Bethlehem officials first introduced the Southeast Realignment plan to Lower Saucon Township Council in July 2014.

The project is located within the southeast section of the landfill’s existing 201-acre permit area, which is zoned for landfill use.

“The Southeast Realignment means continued operations of our facility, which in turn will result in continued benefits to Lower Saucon residents and surrounding communities,” said Sam Donato, Bethlehem Landfill District Manager. “These continued benefits come in the form of host agreement payments, taxes, and contributions to local organizations and charities we proudly support.”
