The State (CalRecycle and State Water Board) permitted the landfill to fill to a specific height.  Per our annual surveys, we have approximately 8-10 years capacity remains.  To plan for the transition of burying garbage in the landfill, to having a transfer station to accept garbage that is then hauled away to another burial location, it is necessary for Public Works to provide for a convenient local option for refuse and recycling disposal.
