Discover our continued efforts to reduce odors at our virtual meeting on October 20th
The Western Placer Waste Management Authority (WPWMA) is seeking input from residents as they virtually host their 10th annual community meeting on Tuesday, October 20th at 6:00 PM to discuss odors and other operational issues of importance to residents. The meeting will be broadcast from the WPWMA’s facility at 3013 Fiddyment Road near the corner of Athens Avenue in Roseville. Please visit WPWMA.ca.gov to RSVP and 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; pending 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 waste management needs into the future.
The WPWMA is a joint powers authority comprised of Placer County and the cities of Lincoln, Rocklin and Roseville. The WPWMA owns and operates a Material Recovery Facility and the only active landfill in Placer County. Over the past nine 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, “The public’s participation has been instrumental in helping us understand how we can continue being a good partner in the community. We encourage our neighbors to join us virtually this year to learn more about current and future facility efforts to address odors and provide their feedback.”
