Rainbow Transfer Station and Material Recovery Facility Improvements Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Industrial use, Utility major/Zoned industrial General
Document Description
The project includes 193,150 sf of new building space including two transfer stations, a secondary recycling building, office, and enclosure of existing material recovery facility (MRF) canopy. Rainbow proposes to expand the capacity of the existing transfer station and MRF from 2,800 to 4,000 tons/day. The expansion would enable Rainbow to continue to process curbside recyclables, construction and demolition debris, green waste, and commercial municipal solid waste. The acquisition of additional land would not be required. All improvements would occur within the existing facility boundary, and no off-site improvements would be required. The project includes upgrades that will reduce noise, odor and emissions. Due to automation, the facility will be able to process a greater amount of waste/recyclables with fewer employees.
