Document Description
The proposed project would involve modifications to the Conditional Use Permit (CUP-4158) for the Vasco Road Landfill to allow for a refuse volume increase. The project would increase the permitted height and refuse volumes of the Vasco Road Landfill. The expansion would occur entirely within the footprint of the currently permitted fill area. The proposed project would involve vertically expanding the maximum elevation of the landfill by 145 feet, from 1,025 feet above mean sea level (amsl) to 1,170 feet amsl. There would be no expansion of the horizontal footprint of the landfill. The proposed increase would add approximately 7,237,100 cubic yards (cy) of airspace capacity, increasing the permitted total design capacity from 32,970,000 cy to approximately 40,207,100 cy. The project would not result in changes to the permitted maximum daily tonnage, which would remain at 2,518 tons per day; permitted traffic volume, which would remain at 625 vehicles per day; permitted disposal acres, which would remain at 246 acres; or hours of operation, which would remain at 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, 6:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and open on Sundays by special arrangements with management approval for commercial haulers only. Per the existing SWFP, the permitted landfill closure year is 2022, and the estimated effective closure year based on the landfill’s existing remaining capacity is 2031. The project would extend the permitted closure year by 29 years from 2022 to December 31, 2051.
