Scholl Canyon Landfill Wasteshed

On October 6, 1987, the City of Glendale adopted Ordinance No. 4780 - Regulating the Extent of Use of the Scholl Canyon Landfill. This Ordinance limits disposal at the Scholl Canyon Landfill to solid waste generated within designated cities and communities. The Sanitation Districts, as operators of the Scholl Canyon Landfill, have the responsibility for implementing the Ordinance.

This Ordinance prohibits disposal at the Scholl Canyon Landfill of refuse material generated within any city which either owns, operates, maintains or regulates a sanitary landfill, or is entitled to the use or possession of a sanitary landfill site within its municipal limits, and it allows disposal of solid waste only from designated cities and unincorporated areas listed in the Ordinance.

Each user of the Sanitation Districts' solid waste facilities is urged to cooperate in order to ensure proper implementation of this Ordinance. The Scholl Canyon landfill wasteshed area is specifically described as:

  • Los Angeles County incorporated cities of Glendale, La Canada Flintridge, Pasadena, South Pasadena, San Marino, and Sierra Madre;
  • Los Angeles County unincorporated communities known as Altadena, La Crescenta, Montrose;
  • Unincorporated area bordered by the cities of San Gabriel, Rosemead, Temple City, Arcadia, and Pasadena;
  • Unincorporated area immediately to the north of the City of San Marino bordered by the City of Pasadena on the west, north and east sides.
