Document Description
In February 2009, a CUP was issued by the City of Vernon to Enserv West, LLC ("Enserv") to operate a medical waste transfer station and treatment facility located at 4726 Loma Vista Avenue. The operation consists of transferring and treating of medical waste from generators such as hospitals, medical clinics or other producers of medical waste. The medical waste is treated via stream sterilization also known as "autoclaving". The autoclave is a device used for medical waste disposal which renders the material inert by applying intense steam heat. On December 4, 2009, Stericycle, Inc. acquired the assets of Enserv West LLC and their parent company, Medserv, Inc. Stericycle wishes to add the treatment of "foreign garbage" regulated by the Animal Plant Health Inspection (commonly referred to as APHIS waste) as outlined under the authority of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) at the Loma Vista site. The CUP that was issued by the City of Vernon to Enserv did not permit the treatment of APHIS waste; it only permitted the treatment and transfer of medical waste. Therefore, Stericycle is requesting an amendment to its existing CUP to allow for the treatment of APHIS waste at the subject site. The project is subject to the CEQA because it requires discretionary approval. The City has performed a comprehensive evaluation of the potential impacts for this project in accordance with the State CEQA Guidelines. The City has determined that this project will not have significant effect on the environment and proposes to adopt a Neg Dec for this project.
