Nevada County’s Solid Waste Division is proposing to renovate the McCourtney Road Transfer Station (MRTS) to better serve the community. The McCourtney Road Transfer Station (MRTS) provides solid waste and recycling services for the communities of Grass Valley, Nevada City, and the unincorporated areas of western Nevada County, California. Proposed improvements will address current facility challenges and future operations to accommodate growth leading to increased materials received and customers served.

Proposed Improvements Include:  

  • Building a new Public Receiving Area (PRA) building to provide more unloading bays and improve unloading facility capacity and efficiency
  • Adding a new access road and entrance scale facilities to reduce arrival wait time and traffic delays
  • Improving site circulation to provide easier access to the household hazardous waste (HHW) and recyclables buy-back areas
  • Rearranging the site to provide easier access for green waste unloading and construction demolition debris unloading

Public Notice - 12/14/2021:

Public Notice Released: Meeting scheduled to discuss the revision to McCourtney Transfer Station's Solid Waste Facility Permit.
