  • Rainbow Environmental Services Transfer Station


    Rainbow Environmental Services is proposing to expand their existing transfer station and material recovery facility (MRF) to include approximately 193,150 square feet of new building area including two transfer stations, a secondary recycling building, office, and enclosure of existing MRF canopy. Rainbow’s capacity is proposed to increase from the current 2,800 tons per day (TPD) to 4,000 TPD in a manner that would allow ongoing operations during construction. The acquisition of additional land would not be required. All improvements would occur within the existing facility boundary, and no off-site improvements would be required. The expanded facility would comply with stringent new regulations from South Coast Air Quality Management District and the California Integrated Waste Management Board through the use of state-of-the-art systems to control dust and odors, and monitor air quality. In addition, several functions that currently occur outdoors will be improved and enclosed, reducing noise and odor. The Rainbow Environmental Services facility is located at 17121 Nichols Street.
