Ten Sleep Solid Waste Disposal District




            In accordance with the provisions of the Wyoming Environmental Quality Act and Chapter 1 of the Solid Waste Rules and Regulations, the Ten Sleep Solid Waste Disposal District has submitted a closure permit application for the Ten Sleep Landfill.


            This facility will cease disposal of solid waste.  The 43.79 acre facility is located approximately 1.5 miles south east of Ten Sleep WY.  More specifically, this facility is located in portions of Sections 21 and 22, T47N, R88W, in Washakie County, Wyoming.


            The Department of Environmental Quality, Solid and Hazardous Waste Division (DEQ) has reviewed the application and determined that it is generally complete and suitable for publication.  The DEQ’s solid waste rules, in Chapter 1, require that the applicant must provide public notice that  a proposed permit has been issued and inform the public that there is an opportunity to file comments on the proposed permit before it is issued in final form.  The notice is also required to indicate that the public may file formal written objections to issuance of a final permit. This publication provides notice of those opportunities.


            Copies of the permit application, the DEQ’s review of the application, and the proposed permit can be viewed at DEQ’s Casper office, 152 N. Durbin Street Casper, WY 82609, at the Ten Sleep Public Library (Ten Sleep Public Library, 200 Fir St., Ten Sleep, WY 82442), and the Washakie County Clerk’s Office (1001 Big Horn Ave., Worland, WY 82401).


Any interested person has the right to either: provide comments on the proposed permit, which DEQ will consider prior to taking final action on the permit application, or file formal written objections to the proposed permit. The period for providing comments, or filing formal written objections to the proposed permit, shall begin on January 29, 2019 and end on March 11, 2019.  Any comments or formal written objections must be received by 5:00 PM on the last day of the notice period.  Comments or formal objections must be submitted in writing to the Department of Environmental Quality, Todd Parfitt, Director, 200 W. 17th Street, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002. Formal written objections must be accompanied by a statement of facts upon which the objection is based. If substantial written objections are filed, a contested case hearing will be held by the Environmental Quality Council.
