Document Description
Butte County Department of Public Works is proposing to construct a covered aerated static pile (CASP) composting facility within the existing Neal Road Recycling and Waste Facility (NRRWF) located at 1023 Neal Road in unincorporated Butte County. The CASP is a composting system equipped with an oxygen controlled, positively aerated system and an oxygen and temperature monitoring device. At full buildout, the CASP would have a feedstock throughput of approximately 40,000 tons of organic waste per year and would produce approximately 40,000 cubic yards of compost per year. The County has been awarded a grant by CalRecycle to assist with the construction of the CASP and the County anticipates that the CASP would be constructed during the third quarter of 2021.
