Instead of worrying about landfill space, Waste Management will look to convert the Bradley Landfill in Sun Valley to a transfer and recycling center. The landfill will close in April when its permit expires, which continues a trend of landfills in the area closing and being topped off. Amanda Covarrubias of the LA Times reports.
The company that operates the last active garbage dump in the city of Los Angeles has abandoned efforts to expand its San Fernando Valley landfill, which is scheduled to close next spring.
For four years, Waste Management had sought a 43-foot height extension for the Bradley Landfill in Sun Valley. But with the closing date fast approaching and Councilman Tony Cardenas recently announcing his opposition to expansion, company officials decided to withdraw the application, said spokeswoman Katherine Cole.
