In a perfect world, with all of us working together, recycling and garbage reduction would be enough to avoid the need for more landfill space. However, today with each American creating approximately 4.4 pounds of trash every day and as our region's population grows, the need for a modern, environmentally safe disposal site is urgent.
Gregory Canyon Ltd is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with several private equity sources to finance the next round of development work to complete the acquisition of the final permits for the Gregory Canyon property. The project is in the final stages of the permit process and anticipates demolition and pre grading activities to begin in the first quarter of 2014 with full construction activities beginning in the third quarter. Project management is estimating the landfill will be in operation by 2015.
“We are very pleased with the fact that our financial sponsors remain committed to the development and construction of this vital project” said Project Manager Jim Simmons, “This funding will allow us to keep the project on schedule and will enable us to begin planning for the construction phase”
Large-scale municipal landfills are a relatively new invention. The first modern sanitary landfill was created in Fresno, California in 1937. Today there are thousands of active landfills all over the United States. The challenge for our growing communities is that many of these disposal sites are either filling to capacity, environmentally outdated or too costly for cities to run in these tight economic times.
For over ten years, Gregory Canyon Landfill Ltd. has been working toward one goal: providing a state-of-the art, economically viable, convenient, and most importantly, environmentally safe disposal facility to serve the residents and businesses of San Diego County.
