Big Bear Transfer Station Amendment Public Notice
Description of Project and LEA’s Preliminary Determination
The Big Bear Transfer Station is located on the southwest portion of the Big Bear Sanitary Landfill site. The
facility is surrounded by National Forest Land in an unincorporated area of San Bernardino County. The site
is approximately 2.5 miles from the City of Big Bear Lake and approximately 1.5 miles north of Baldwin
Lake and Sate Highway 18. On November 17, 2009 the LEA received, from San Bernardino County, Solid
Waste Management Division, a Solid Waste Facility Permit (SWFP) application package to allow for the
collection of E-Waste and change the hazardous waste storage time.
The LEA finds that the proposed change is consistent with all applicable certified and/or adopted CEQA
documents, is consistent with State Minimum Standards, and does not conflict with the terms and conditions
in the current solid waste facilities permit. The LEA approved the amendment on December 17, 2009.
