An Update On The North Area Transfer Station

For those North Natomas residents wondering “whatever happened to plans for a north-area recycling and garbage transfer station” here is an update per Sherill Huun with the city’s Department of Utilities:

“The comment period for the Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report for the Sacramento Recycling and Transfer Station North Project (State Clearinghouse No. 2006082041) closed on October 29, 2007.”

“The City is in the process of completing the Final Environmental Impact Report including preparing responses to all written Draft EIR comments.”

“The City is also continuing to negotiate with the County of Sacramento to utilize the County’s North Area Recovery Station (NARS). The next City-County negotiation meeting is being scheduled for mid-March.”

What is a Transfer Station, you ask?

A transfer station is a facility designed to process and transfer waste materials from collection vehicles, such as garbage trucks.

These materials, which include everything thrown away, such as solid waste, recyclables and compost materials, are then sorted and transported to a disposal site.

The recirculated Draft EIR – and other helpful information – is available to view here.
