Document Description
The Imperial Landfill, owned and operated by Imperial Landfill, Inc., is a Class III non-hazardous solid waste landfill located in an unincorporated portion of Imperial County. The landfill is currently approaching full capacity. The project proposes to implement a Landfill Plan and that includes a lateral and vertical expansion for development of a new disposal cell beyond the currently permitted area to extend the facility's life from the remaining three to five (3-5) years approximately thirty (30) years in order to meet the current and future waste disposal needs of Imperial County. The Landfill Plan also includes redesign of the facility, addition of a public drop off facility, relocation of the scale house, increased recycling operations, and use of the offsite borrow sites to supply soil for landfill cover operations. As part of the grading permit process for the borrow site locations and configurations have been specified after the landfill expansion begins. The project would include an additional 160 acres (including the 89-acre new cell and 71 acres of remainder).
