Site suitability

If a site has one or more of the following issues, it may not be a suitable site:

  • Previous failure of site (odor complaints, regulatory non-compliance, fire)
  • Neighborhood concerns/political challenges about noise, traffic, odors, proximity
  • Incorrectly zoned
  • Located in a floodplain
  • No access to water
  • Inadequate access roads
  • Unbuildable soils
  • Excessive hauling costs
