Document Description
The applicant is proposing to relocate the Western El Dorado County Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) from its existing location at the southern terminus of Throwitaway Drive to a vacant, 17.9-acre industrially zoned site located at the terminus of Industrial Drive. The proposed project would consist of two major actions: demolition of the existing MRF on Throwitaway Drive and construction/operation of the proposed MRF on Industrial Drive. The proposed MRF would be an enclosed, state-of-the-art facility that would comply with State requirements for solid waste handling, transfer, and processing operations as outlined in Division 7, Title 14 CCR. The design of the proposed MRF would restrict the unloading area to as small an area as practicable, provide adequate control of windblown material, and minimize the propagation or attraction of flies, rodents or other vectors. The proposed MRF would include an enclosed 45,000 square foot recycling center, a 15,000 square foot truck maintenance facility, and a 6,000 square foot office, as well as a scale house and masonry annex. The structural elements would be sited on the central and western portions of APN 329-240-49, south of Industrial Drive. The applicant proposes to separate the MRF from the rest of the property and to allow for the future development of additional permitted industrial uses in the northern and eastern portions of the parcel. Development of additional permitted industrial uses would be consistent with the El Dorado General Plan and existing zoning designation.
