The Western Placer Waste Management Authority will host its third community meeting April 24 to discuss odors and other operational issues of importance to residents.

The WPWMA is a joint powers authority comprising Placer County and the cities of Lincoln, Rocklin and Roseville. The WPWMA owns and operates the landfill, Material Recovery Facility and compost facility in south Placer County.

Over the past two years, the WPWMA has conducted community meetings to engage residents in a dialogue regarding the WPWMA’s operations and regional odor conditions. April’s meeting will include updates on WPWMA operations and planned projects for reducing the effects of facility odors on the surrounding community.

 “We look forward to continuing our dialogue with the community and are excited about the improvements we have planned that will help us identify and better manage odors from our facility,” said WPWMA Executive Director Jim Durfee. “We encourage our neighbors to attend the meeting, talk with staff and give us their feedback.”
