Closed landfill and operational transfer station

Document Description
The Sonoma Transfer Station accepts mixed municipal Class III solid waste, commercial and residential demolition debris, yard waste, and recyclable materials. The County is out-hauling all solid waste generated within the county to out-of-county landfills. Some of the destination landfills have extended hours in which they accept waste. To improve the efficiency of this out-hauling, and improve the flexibility of the out-hauling process, the County proposes to revise the current Solid Waste Facility Permit from the California Integrated Waste Management Board. The revision to the permit will allow the contract operator access to the site for processing, compacting, loading transfer trailers, and out-hauling solid waste from the facility to 24-hours a day, seven days per week (adding 11.5 hours to what is currently allowed for this activity). No waste of any type will be accepted during these extended hours. Waste will be accepted only during current public hours of operation (7 am to 4 pm). These extended hours will improve the overall operational efficiency of the facility over the long term.
