Present Land Use: EDCO Solid Waste Facility (Industrial)/ Zoning: M-D(Industrial Service and Manufacturing/ Urban Design Overlay)/ General Plan Designation: City Public Use
The EDCO Material Recovery Facility and Transfer Station (Station) is a fully surfaced, existing solid waste facility, with some structures and a landscaped perimeter. It has been operating since 1999 under a City March 25, 1997-approved Conditional Use Permit (CUP) # CP-06-96 for the operation of EDCO Station, with a permitted tonnage limit of 1,000 tons per day (tpd). EDCO is requesting an "expansion" of the facility. This includes both focused footprint effects, as well an expansion in daily tonnage treated. Expansion is proposed due to continued growth in the region, including increased public disposal (self-haulers) and seasonal surges, which require an increase in tonnage capacity to a total of 2,000 tpd. An exit scale and scale house are proposed to be added, which comprises the only proposed change to facility footprint. A concrete pad would be installed to support the scale house, and a small (103 square feet) pre-engineered metal building would be brought in by truck, unloaded, and secured to the concrete. The structure would be relatively square in shape, have a door and window, and a flat roof. It would not exceed 12 feet 8 inches in height. The scale would consist of an approximately 70-foot-long steel platform truck scale with 15-foot-long concrete ramps on both sides of the platform. The new weigh station would improve circulation—allowing for adequate on-site queuing, offloading and efficient overall site circulation, as well as for maximum safety by separating commercial and public vehicles.
