Bartow, Fla. (March 16, 2022) — The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has denied BS Ranch & Farm’s October 2020 application for renewal of a permit to operate a closed-loop, non-discharging industrial organic recycling facility. The Facility is located at 2314 Longhorn Ave. in Lakeland.
The six-page document includes five deficiencies in the application that the Department determined that the applicant did not provide reasonable assurance that the facility’s operation will be in accord with applicable laws, rules and permit conditions, including rules approved for local programs.
Under Florida Statutes, BS Ranch & Farm and persons entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S. may petition Florida DEP for an administrative hearing within 14 days of receipt of this written notice that is dated March 15, 2022.
