WPWMA INVITES RESIDENTS TO TALK TRASH AT 11th ANNUAL COMMUNITY MEETING
Join us October 13 to discover our continued efforts to reduce odors.
The Western Placer Waste Management Authority (WPWMA) invites the community to their 11th annual community meeting on Wednesday, October 13th at 6:00 PM to discuss odors and other operational issues of importance to residents. This meeting will be held virtually. Please RSVP at WPWMA.ca.gov to receive the virtual meeting link.
The workshop will include updates on current WPWMA projects and provide an opportunity for residents to engage with WPWMA staff and ask questions surrounding the following topics: WPWMA history and facility operations; on- and offsite odor conditions; regulations affecting odors; enhancements to the odor monitoring system; and an overview of the WPWMA’s Waste Action Plan to address western Placer County’s future waste management needs.
The WPWMA, a joint powers authority comprised of Placer County and the cities of Lincoln, Rocklin and Roseville, owns and operates a Material Recovery Facility and the only active landfill in Placer County. Over the past eleven years, the WPWMA has conducted community meetings to engage residents in a dialogue regarding the WPWMA’s operations and regional odor conditions.
Eric Oddo, the WPWMA’s Program Manager, commented on the upcoming meeting, “We are looking forward to the opportunity to continue our positive dialogue with the community and share information about our current and future efforts aimed at addressing facility odors and meeting the solid waste needs of a rapidly growing community. The public continues to provide valuable feedback that supports our commitment to being a good partner in the community. We hope to see our neighbors at this year’s online meeting.”
