On August 3, 2015, American Disposal Services of West Virginia, Inc., dba Short Creek Landfill (Short Creek) filed a request to modify a portion of its current tariff. Specifically, Short Creek seeks to add language that would allow it to negotiate with customers seeking to dispose of waste that Short Creek believes requires special handling. The negotiable terms would include (i) the volume of waste accepted, (ii) the details of disposal and (iii) the price of disposal. Short Creek also included a list of sixteen categories of waste it seeks to designate as requiring special handling. Finally, Short Creek seeks a negotiable surcharge for waste in vehicles requiring “other than normal or ordinary landfill assistance.”

The proposed categories of waste requiring special handling include: (1) shredder fluff, insulation and similar light-weight wastes, (2) ash, (3) stabilized liquids, (4) drums, (5) sludges, (6) PCBs in concentration of 50 ppm or less, (7) pesticide containers, (8) animal carcasses, (9) contaminated soil, (10) baled waste, (11) construction demolition debris, (12) non-hazardous industrial, (13) agricultural, (14) carbon black, (15) non-infectious and (16) any and all other wastes and materials identified as special wastes by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection.
