Waste Management has abandoned plans to expand the Bradley Landfill in Sun Valley and instead will pursue plans for a 100,000-square-foot transfer and recycling center in the San Fernando Valley. Community leaders see positives in recent Waste Management community involvement but are waiting to see the final plans before taking a stand on the transfer center. Issues are increased traffic, increased odor and particulate matter and future community involvement by Waste Management. The company states it is committed to mitigating the negative impact of the center. The proposed $17 million facility at 9081 Tujunga Ave. will accept up to 4,000 tons of trash a day and 400 tons of recyclables.
