Recology Vallejo Initial Study

Back to Environmental Services page


RCH managed an Initial Study for Permit Revisions at Recology Vallejo. The CEQA Lead Agency was the Solano County Environmental Health Services Division. Recology Vallejo is sought to obtain a Solid Waste Facility Permit (SWFP) for a large-volume transfer station, which would allow the operator to increase its permitted daily processing capacity to 300 tons per day of mixed recyclables and organics. The facility was processing approximately 177 tons per day of mixed recyclables and organics. The project would also allow for the inclusion of food waste into the existing green waste collection service. The SWFP would apply to the entire 9.4-acre property and would include both the recycling and food/green waste activities. RCH also prepared a Noise Report for the project and managed a Traffic Report prepared by PHA Transportation Consultants. The Mitigated Negative Declaration, together with the Mitigation Monitoring Program, was adopted by the Lead Agency on October 28, 2014.
