Document Description
Revisions to the City of Fremont's solid waste management system. Specific changes proposed include: (1) have all of the City municipal solid waste (MSW) taken to transfer station/materials recovery facility (TS/MRF) to be located at 41149 Boyce Road instead of to the Tri Cities Recycling and Disposal Facility (TCRDF) landfill; (2) to divert, at minimum, 12 percent recycled materials from the MSW received at the TS/MRF facility; (3) to have the remaining MSW transferred to an existing sanitary landfill in either San Joaquin County or Alameda County; and (4) to create a household hazardous waste turn-in facility that is easily available to residents and small quantity generators and is consistent with Best Management Practices for such a facility. Other activities which may be allowed at the proposed TS/MRF on Boyce Road could include the transfer of MSW collected in the Cities of Union City and/or Newark, the processing of source separated recyclables and yard waste collected within the City of Fremont and/or the cities of Union City and Newark, and the processing of recyclables from outside the Tri-Cities.
