NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The project consists of routing C&D waste to the relocated wood and green waste processing area for minor sorting. It is anticipated that the majority of the C&D waste will be wood waste. The sorting will be to remove materials such as metal boards, plastic, cardboard, concrete, and sheetrock. The wood waste will then be processed, generally to be sold as biomass fuel. The residual materials from the sorting process will be recycled or hauled to the landfill for disposal.
