Draft Environmental Impact Report for Revisions to the City of Fremont's Solid Waste Management System-PLN2002-00150
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The City of Fremont is proposing to make changes in its solid waste management system. At the present time, all of the City's municipal solid waste is collected and hauled directly to the Tri Cities Recycling and Disposal Facility (TCRDF) on Auto Mall Parkway in Fremont. For the purposes of the EIR, "municipal solid waste" is defined to include both wet and dry solid waste generated within the City of Fremont that is not currently either separated by the generator for recycling, or source separated and processed as Alternate Daily Cover (ADC) at a permitted sanitary landfill. According to the operator of the TCRDF, the permitted capacity for that landfill will be reached sometime in 2003, and the facility will no longer accept additional waste. Accordingly, the City proposes to adopt a new long-term system for disposing of its municipal solid waste that will include: (1) having all of the City's municipal solid waste hauled to a transfer station/materials recovery facility (TS/MRF) to be located at 41099 Boyce Road in Fremont; and (2) having the waste transferred from collection vehicles to long distance transfer trucks and hauled to an existing permitted sanitary landfill, the Forward Sanitary Landfill, located at 9999 Austin Road in San Joaquin County. The waste hauled to the Forward Landfill will not cause the landfill to exceed its currently permitted gate capacity.
