Grand Central Recycling and Transfer Station permit receives Waste Board seal of approval

On February 20, 2001 the California Department of Resources and Recycling (CalRecycle) concurred in the issuance of a Solid Waste Facility Permit to City of Industry Disposal, dba Grand Central Recycling and Transfer Station, Inc., to operate a 1,500 tons per day Transfer Station in
 the City of Industry. The facility will be used primarily by the operator, but will be open to other commercial haulers and self-haulers. Acting for the proponent was Clements Environmental.

Pebbly Beach Landfill permit gets thumbs up
construction image

After three public hearings, and two environmental reviews, on March 21, 2001 the CalRecycle concurred in the issuance of a Solid Waste Facility Permit to Republic Industries, dba Seagull Sanitation, for the Pebbly Beach Landfill. Speaking on behalf of the site was Rob Clark, City Manager of the city of Avalon. There was no opposition. As has been reported here, the site will include a material recovery facility (MRF) and a composting operation.

The operator is being assisted by Matt Cotton of Integrated Waste Management Consulting in the composting area. The landfill will be converted to a bale-fill. Construction of the MRF is well underway. These photographs show the structure as it existed at the end of May. Since then, the exterior walls have been erected. Inside, an eight person sorting line, a baler and a shredder are in place. With a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and the undeveloped Island interior as a backdrop, there may not be a more beautiful location for a landfill in the entire State of California. construction image


Republic Industries has contracted with UltraSystems Environmental Inc. to develop a CEQA analysis for the BelArt Transfer Station in Long Beach. Tentatively, the operator has indicated they will be seeking an increase in the permitted tonnage from 1,500 to 4,000 tons per day. Because of a unique land use arrangement, the LEA will be the Lead Agency for CEQA.

Environmental Science Associates has submitted a draft Report of Station Information (RSI) for the Culver City Transfer Station. The applicant (Culver City) will be seeking to revise the SWFP to essentially double the permitted tonnage from 500 to 1,056 tons per day. The City of Culver City is the Lead Agency for CEQA and is in the process of developing the Initial Study.
