Project Description

The Project site is used as a solid waste facility and a recycling and resource recovery operation which is currently permitted for a 1,700 tons per day (TPD) transfer station/materials recycling facility (MRF) and which for recycling receives approximately 1,200 TPD of construction materials, 1,200 TPD of source-separated green waste, 350 TPD of source-separated supermarket trim and cull, and 150 TPD of source-separated wood waste. The Proposed Project includes construction of an approximate 107,000-square-foot enclosure building with air filtration system to be located over the existing source-separated green waste, supermarket trim and cull, and wood waste areas, with 40 parking spaces (already existing), and a revised Solid Waste Facilities Permit for the entire facility. Under the new permit, the applicant is seeking approval to receive up to 2,000 TPD of construction material, up to 1,500 TPD of source-separated green waste, up to 500 TPD of source-separated supermarket trim and cull, and up to 200 TPD of source-separated wood waste.  The applicant is also seeking to increase the permit for the transfer station/MRF to 2,500 TPD, for a total proposed tonnage of material received of 6,700 TPD.
