NOD - Notice of Determination
Present Land Use
The authority commenced organics processing in the form of a chipping and grinding operation in May of 2005. In May 2015, the Authority provided an EA Notification for a modified organics operations for green waste (yard trimmings, untreated wood, plant materials) composting operations, for up to 26,000 tons per year (SWIS 27-AA-0122). The project adds food waste composting to the existing permitted green waste composting operation. Green waste trimmings and food scraps will be processed daily using an Extended Aerated Static Pile (EASP) system. The ultimate capacity of the compost system is up to 26,000 tons per year of compost. The addition of food waste to the exiting composting operation supports State-mandated diversion for compliance with AB 1826 (mandatory commercial organics recycling). The project operation update will be incorporated into a revision of SWFP 27-AA-0005.
