Document Description
The Napa Materials Diversion Facility (NMDF) is located at 820 Levitin Way and currently receives and processes all solid waste, compostable and recyclable materials generated within the City that are collected by the City’s authorized operator Napa Recycling & Waste Services (NRWS). The NMDF also receives, and processes materials delivered by haulers servicing surrounding jurisdictions (such as unincorporated Napa County) and by private (self-haul) customers. Current operations on the Project site include receiving, storing, processing, recycling, and composting waste materials from residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. The site operates under Solid Waste Facility Permit 28-AA-0030. The Project would include a portion of the adjacent parcel to the south (APN 057-090-060). The parcel will be split into a separate parcel upon purchase and subsequently annexed into the City of Napa. The EIR will evaluate the southern parcel area as the location for the proposed biomass gasification facility and potentially other NMDF operations. The Project would also add a portion of the parcel to the north that is owned by 600 Tower Road Holdings, LLC, an LLC with the same owners as NRWS. The Tower Road Parcel may be used for inert materials processing and storage and equipment storage. The current Napa Renewable Resources Project 1.0 (NRRP 1.0) at the NMDF was approved in 2014 (with later amendments). The City plans to increase its resource recovery capabilities at the NMDF to meet evolving state regulations for solid waste, compostable and recyclable materials. The proposed changes will be evaluated in the NRRP 2.0 EIR. The NRRP 2.0 EIR will evaluate resource recovery improvements on and adjacent to the existing NMDF operations at 820 Levitin Way. The proposed major improvements consist of the following: • Increase NMDF permitted maximum incoming daily tonnage from to 760 to 1,000 tons per day; • Add a Biomass Gasification Facility on adjacent property to be annexed into City of Napa or on the existing NMDF site; • Add an Anaerobic Digestion Facility on the existing NMDF site or on the adjacent property to be annexed into the City; and • Add solar panels over the parking and materials storage areas along the eastern property border from the covered aerated static piles (CASP) to the property boundary.
