Public Workshops and Survey on Sonoma County Composting Facilities

Apr 17, 2017


The Sonoma County Waste Management Agency (SCWMA) is holding two public workshops on April 19th and 27th to receive feedback on an upcoming Request for Proposals (RFP) process for securing long-term organics processing capacity.

The SCWMA is seeking public input on community and stakeholder priorities for the upcoming RFP for the following issues:
• Focusing on a single facility or multiple facilities
• Considering in-county facilities only, or all viable facilities
• Technology type proposed (composting, anaerobic digestion, vermicomposting, etc.)
• Finished product standards (organic agriculture, backyard gardening, land cover, etc.)
• The relative importance of disposal cost, securing long term capacity, providing local soil amendments, maximizing landfill diversion, reduction of greenhouse gas emission from transport and processing and related to landfilling organics, and the production of clean energy

Please consider attending one of these public workshops:
