Conditional Use Permit Application No. C-11-089 was filed by Richard Caglia, II of CARTS LP, and pertains to 33.65 acres of property located on the west side of South Cedar Avenue between North and Central Avenues. The project site is planned and zoned for heavy industrial uses and includes land south of the existing Cedar Avenue Recycling and Transfer Station (CARTS). The applicant requests authorization to expand CARTS in order to address greenhouse gas reduction and waste diversion mandates and to more fully integrate CARTS operations with existing resource recovery activities on adjacent property. CARTS operational hours (24 hrs/day, 7 days/week) will be retained for the expanded project to optimize process efficiency. The expansion plan includes the additional of a 95,000 sf building for processing waste and recyclables and a 62,000 sf fully enclosed digester facility. The expansion will have a renewable energy generating capacity of up to 3.5 megawatt equivalents from anaerobic digestion, biomass gasification, and photovoltaic solar. The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District will conduct a new source review for permitting the facility. The complete operational statement is being sent to responsible and trustee agencies and departments via email.
