Toland Road Landfill operates under a strict Conditional Use Permit (CUP) with 88 conditions and
285 sub-clauses that outline parameters for landfill operations and restrictions. Other documents and
permits governing the landfill's operation include an Environmental Impact Report, Planning Fee
Resolutions, and the Ventura County Ordinance Code (as regulated by the County of Ventura)); the
NPDES, Waste Discharge Requirement, and Storm Water Permit (as regulated by the Regional
Water Quality Control Board); the Solid Waste Facility Permit (as regulated by the Local
Enforcement Agency); the Uniform Fire Code Permit (as regulated by the Ventura County Fire
Department); and the California Code of Regulations (as regulated by the State of California).
Required Plans and Programs
Plans and programs required by Toland’s CUP are comprehensive and rigorous. For example, the
requirement for Dust Suppression comprises 13 separate elements including requirements to pave
high-use roads on site, vacuum them, and water unpaved roads. Toland staff have developed and
maintain over 25 full-scale plans and programs in response to CUP requirements. Landfill employees
continue to seek out and implement even better solutions and operations, continually upgrading and
refining these required programs and adding others not required by the oversight agencies.
