McMullen Septic Service, Inc. of Seaford Delaware has requested renewal of their existing agricultural utilization permit, State Permit Number AGU 1407-S-05. The current permit authorizes the surface application of limited quantities of grease trap waste at agronomic rates onto a portion of the Jack McMullen Farm total approximately 6 acres of farmland. This AGU permit does not authorize the application of grease trap waste that contains sanitary wastewater. The grease trap waste is required to undergo periodic analysis for a list of specific parameters including nutrient content. Nutrient content limits the application volume onto permitted farms. Grease trap waste will be delivered to the land application sites in accordance with Delaware Waste Transporters Permit Number WH-050 and does not contain sanitary wastewater.
Part V of the Department’s Guidance and Regulations Governing the Land Treatment of Wastes allows for such activity pending public notice.
Copies of the permit above are available by contacting:
