Pomona Valley Transfer Station
Environmental Impact Report | Pomona, California
This Project involves the construction and operation of a solid waste transfer station and associated supporting facilities, together with necessary site, access, and utilities/services improvements. The primary function of the transfer station is to accept and consolidate municipal solid waste received from individual haulers for subsequent transport by larger semi-trailer transfer trucks to area landfills for disposal.
Main components of the Project include a transfer station building, separate commercial and self-haul load out areas, a sub-grade load out area, office and maintenance building, a scale house, and fueling stations.
Transfer stations allow franchise trash collection vehicles and self-haulers to avoid long trips to remote landfills. This approach can provide an efficient means to transport waste to area-wide landfills. In these regards, the underlying goals of the Project are to enhance waste management services within the City and region, stabilize rising solid waste collection costs, and reduce environmental impacts otherwise associated with waste handling and disposal.
Main issues analyzed in the EIR included Land Use, Air Quality, Noise, Hazards, Hydrology and Water Quality, Public Services and Cultural Resources.
