Sunshine Canyon Landfill should expand into 494 acres in Granada Hills, but only gradually with reviews to make sure the dump is not a nuisance to neighbors, a city official has recommended. R. Nicolas Brown, a hearing examiner for the city Planning Department, also recommended that landfill operator Browning-Ferris Industries be required to maintain a 100-acre buffer zone between the dump and residential areas to the south.

After a seven-hour hearing Thursday on the perils and promises of burying garbage, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission unanimously approved expansion of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill into 494 acres in Granada Hills. More than 20 residents of the surrounding neighborhood testified against widening the dump, arguing it threatened the air and water, could not be adequately protected from earthquakes and sometimes littered the area with windblown trash.

In a surprise move, the Los Angeles City Council postponed its vote Tuesday on a controversial expansion of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill into Granada Hills, giving opponents of the project more time to gather support for their cause. Even die-hard opponents of expanding the landfill, which owner Browning-Ferris Industries wants to enlarge from its current 216 to 710 acres, had expected the project to be approved overwhelmingly by the council to meet waste needs for the future.

The county Regional Planning Commission voted Wednesday to deny a new permit that would allow the county and city sides of Sunshine Canyon Landfill to operate as one dump. The final decision, which Browning-Ferris Industries is likely to appeal to the Board of Supervisors, means the landfill will continue operating under separate permits and conditions. Panel members voiced concerns about the lack of deadlines for closing the landfill and about its negative impact on traffic.

The Los Angeles City Council unanimously passed a resolution Wednesday calling for state water regulators to reject a request by Browning-Ferris Industries to remove two provisions from its permit to expand Sunshine Canyon Landfill into Granada Hills. The resolution was introduced by Councilman Greig Smith, who represents that area, and was forwarded to Mayor James K. Hahn's office. The two provisions were included in a permit approved by a regional water board Dec. 4.

A Los Angeles City Council panel recommended Monday that the city haul its trash to two San Fernando Valley landfills after the city's main dump, Lopez Canyon Landfill in Lake View Terrace, closes June 30. The Environmental Quality and Waste Management Committee recommended that the 820,000 tons of trash that the city dumps annually go to the Sunshine Canyon Landfill near Granada Hills and the Bradley Landfill in Sun Valley.

Setting the stage for a potential clash with the Los Angeles City Council, the Board of Public Works voted Friday to include the owners of the Sunshine Canyon Landfill in negotiations for a long-term city trash disposal contract. The decision angered some San Fernando Valley council members who oppose doing business with Browning-Ferris Industries, the owners of Sunshine Canyon, because they say it is uncertain when or if the dump will reopen.
