For the Newby Island landfill expansion to get final approval, Republic Services needs to get the City of San Jose’s local and CalRecycle state level’s licenses. Since the City of San Jose has granted the local license two years ago, the best chance to stop the expansion now is to email, call, and ATTEND this final decision making meeting which will be held on Jan 27th in CalRecycle building. Meeting Agenda is here.
