Second city panel shuns Sunshine Canyon verdict

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has said he believes the options other than Sunshine Canyon are too costly to consider because of a $245 million budget shortfall facing the city. However, Sunshine Canyon opponents still dispute the figures used by the city. “What they aren’t taking into account is that they will have to reduce the amount of trash going into Sunshine, and we think they are overestimating the transportation costs to other areas,” said Wayde Hunter, president of the North Valley Coalition. Councilman Greig Smith, who represents the area, said he wants the city to develop alternatives to Sunshine Canyon and to develop a long-term policy that would turn trash to energy and end the need for urban landfills. The council must vote on the contract by Feb. 28. A second city panel declined to make a recommendation Monday on the continued use of Sunshine Canyon Landfill, instead urging the public to voice its concerns before a scheduled City Council vote Friday. The council’s Budget and Finance Committee was told a financial review verified previous estimates that it would cost $15 million to $30 million more to use a site other than the Granada Hills dump for the 4,000 tons of trash Angelenos generate daily. Bureau of Sanitation chief Rita Robinson said her staff worked over the weekend to reassess cost estimates for possible use of other facilities in Riverside and Kings counties. “In the end, it is a policy decision for the council to make,” Robinson said. “This is a bigger issue than where we dispose of our trash. It’s how we will deal with our refuse. It is a problem that everyone here is part of, because we all generate trash.” Since 2003, city leaders have sought alternatives to Sunshine Canyon but have always come back to the Granada Hills dump as the least-expensive option. Officials estimate the cost of continuing to use the Granada Hills dump at $29 million. Using Sunshine Canyon for some trash and sending the rest to El Sobrante Landfill in Corona would cost $44 million. Another option would be to sign up with Waste Management Inc. and MDSI of Los Angeles. Waste Management has proposed trucking trash 60 miles to El Sobrante. MDSI would haul refuse 200 miles to Avenal Landfill in the San Joaquin Valley. The two companies would replace BFI for $59 million a year, roughly $30 million more than BFI.
