Master Planning Sets Roadmap for Central Los Angeles Recycling and Transfer Station Future
WTE Biogenic CO2 Reductions and the EPA’s Gas Reporting Mandate: What Does the Future Hold?
Speakers: Tom Parker, Associate, CDM Smith
Rosalia Rojo, Environmental Engineer, City of Los Angeles, Bureau of Sanitation
Session Description: This eSession will summarize the Central Los Angeles Recycling and Transfer Station (CLARTS) master planning activities to convert a 20-year old transfer station into an efficient, state-of-the art, and LEED certified facility.
The expected impact of dwindling local landfill capacity and the need for transfer and processing capacity to support the implementation of the City of Los Angeles’ zero waste policies, required the city’s Bureau of Sanitation (BOS) to maximize available infrastructure. This web seminar will explore the master plan initiated by BOS to evaluate CLARTS while increasing revenue in the near term. The plan also identified near-, mid-, and long-term improvements and expansion needed to maximize the use of the facility. Master planning activities that will be discussed include:
On-site Facility Evaluation
Truck Driver Survey
- Peak day operations
- Traffic flow patterns
- Queuing issues
- Scale processing
- Waste unloading and processing
- Scales and transactions
- Storm water
- Pavement analysis
The final master plan included 3-D renderings showing facility improvements and architectural features, green design features, conceptual cost estimates, and a 5 year capital improvement plan that identified approximately $20 million in facility improvements.
- Overall rating
- Improvement recommendations
- Capacity Analysis
- Queuing analysis to simulate permitted tonnage rates
- Peak hour evaluation
- Identify efficiency needs and safety concerns
- Collaboration with BOS engineering, operations, and project management staff.
