PROJECT OVERVIEW

Nevada County’s Solid Waste Division is proposing to renovate the McCourtney Road Transfer Station (MRTS) to better serve the community. The McCourtney Road Transfer Station (MRTS) provides solid waste and recycling services for the communities of Grass Valley, Nevada City and the unincorporated areas of western Nevada County, California. Proposed improvements will address current facility challenges and future operations to accommodate growth leading to increased materials received and customers served.

PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS INCLUDE: 

  • Building a new Public Receiving Area (PRA) building to provide more unloading bays and improve unloading facility capacity and efficiency
  • Adding a new access road and entrance scale facilities to reduce arrival wait time and traffic delays
  • Improving site circulation to provide easier access to the household hazardous waste (HHW) and recyclables buy-back areas
  • Rearranging the site to provide easier access for green waste unloading and construction demolition debris unloading

VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETING

Thank you to those who were able to join our first virtual public meeting. The meeting recording and PowerPoint are now available on the project website. We realize many community members were unable to join our first meeting due to the rolling power outages in portions of Nevada County; therefore, we are hosting another virtual public meeting at the end of September.

Join us to learn more about the project and share your input directly with the project team. Please submit comments and questions related to the presentation by October 9, 2020.

Tuesday, September 29, 2020 from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
