Scholl Canyon Landfill Expansion

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The City of Glendale will be the Lead Agency and has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for this project:

The Sanitation Districts has identified two variations for the proposed project, which include a vertical expansion only (Variation 1) and a vertical and horizontal expansion (Variation 2). Variation 1 will provide approximately 11.5 million cubic yards of additional capacity and will extend the life of the landfill by 13 years (assuming a continued baseline disposal rate of 1,400 tons per day). Variation 2 will provide approximately 16.5 million cubic yards of additional capacity and will extend the life of the landfill by 19 years (assuming a continued baseline disposal rate of 1,400 tons per day). The proposed project will increase the capacity of the project site and therefore increase the life of the landfill to provide long-term disposal for the wasteshed. Neither variation would change current operations at the Scholl Canyon Landfill. The proposed project will provide waste diversion programs and disposal capacity to help meet the solid waste management needs of the City and other landfill users. The proposed project would also include the continued recovery of materials such as green waste, asphalt, soil, tires, metals, and other economically recoverable commodities through ongoing landfill waste diversion programs, which help jurisdictions to comply with state-mandated diversion goals. In addition, the proposed project would extend the recovery and beneficial use of landfill gas and thereby help meet California’s renewable energy goals.

The Draft Environmental Impact Report public comment period has been extended to August 29, 2014.
