Sunshine Canyon Landfill Sub-transmission Line Relocation Project

Pursuant to a request by Browning Ferris Industries of California, Inc. (BFI), a California corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Republic Services, Inc. (Republic), we are   proposing the Sunshine Canyon Landfill Sub-transmission Line Relocation Project in order to relocate an existing power line away from active operations within the Sunshine Canyon Landfill in Los Angeles, to allow for development of the landfill in accordance with approved facility permits.

The City and County of Los Angeles.

Project Details

This project consists of these main components:

  • Relocate a sub-transmission line segment along the landfill’s northern boundary, away from its current alignment through the center of the landfill along the Los Angeles County-City boundary
