Document Description
The subject of this Initial Study is the Pacheco Pass Transfer Station and the closure of the inactive Recology Pacheco Pass Landfill that stopped accepting waste for disposal on September 30, 2008. The proposed Transfer Station development would utilize ~7 acres within the 136 acre property for a 35 ft tall, 47,423 sf transfer station structure to accept, consolidate, and load out local waste and recycling, and associated improvements including paved driveways, a parking area and a septic system. The landfill closure construction activities would broadly involve grading, capping, and installation of vegetative cover on the inactive landfill modules on ~26 acres located generally to the south, south east of the Transfer Station site. The project area is contained entirely within the existing permitted landfill (inactive) boundaries on the property.
