Solid Waste (LEA) & Biosolids
The Environmental Health Division is the Local Enforcement Agency (LEA) overseeing the sanitary disposal of solid waste. This includes issuance of permits, inspection, monitoring, and enforcement activities to assure proper storage, collection, transportation, and disposal of solid waste consistent with local and State regulations.
Biosolids may be disposed of in a landfill, and may also be utilized as alternative daily cover in a landfill. The Environmental Health Services Division also issues permits for site registration and landspreading notification of biooslids as a soil supplement on farmland. Solano County Code, Chaptr 25 contains the county's requirements for landspreading of biosolids. More information can be found at the link to the biosolids landspreading program.
Complaints regarding odors, insects, and/or health problems will be addressed. Individuals making health complaints should inform their physician and this Department. A 24-hour complaint line is established as (707) 580-7628. You will be prompted a series of options to leave a complaint and may choose to have your complaint heard the next business day, or request a return call as soon as practical. You may also submit an electronic complaint using the complaint feedback form for biosolids and landfills
