Lancaster Landfill and Recycling Center Project Approved

On December 14, 2011, the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission approved a conditional use permit for the Lancaster Landfill and Recycling Center Project. The project allows for an increase in the acceptance of municipal solid waste for disposal at the LLRC, and for an increase in green and wood waste recycling operations. The project approval also allows for the continued operation of a Reclaimable Anaerobic Composter research and development project approved by the Local Enforcement Agency and CalRecycle as a composting facility in November 2009. The applicant, Waste Management of California, Inc. and the LLRC, were represented before the County by Andrea Leisy and Amanda Berlin.
