Solid Waste Disposal Operations

Toland Road Landfill

Under VRSD management, customers of the Toland Road Landfill enjoy state-of-the-art solid waste processing at some of the lowest rates in California.

VRSD has garnered multiple awards for its landfill operations, including Excellence in Environmental Leadership from the Ventura County Economic Development Association for the expansion and innovative operation of the 343-acre Toland Road Landfill site.

In addition to its operations at Toland Road, VRSD conducts post-closure work at the former sites of Santa Clara, Coastal, Bailard, Ozena, and Tierra Rejada landfills. This includes landscaping, irrigation and drainage system installation and maintenance, landfill gas extraction, groundwater monitoring, and soil layer quality assurance.

Post-closure operations are funded through funds set aside during site operations.
