  When composting operations were added to the Sonoma County Landfill, on Meacham Road west of Cotati, the location was going to be temporary. It still is, so the process of redesigning a new, permanent composting facility is now underway—one that’s going to be significantly different from the old one.

The new composting site will at a different location within the existing landfill property. An Environmental Impact Study for it is currently being drafted.
