Description of facility and application
McFarlane’s Bark, Inc. submitted an application to renew its Metro solid waste facility license to operate a yard debris compost facility. Current operations would not change under the proposed renewal.
McFarlane’s accepts and processes yard debris for composting, and source-separated clean wood waste for delivery to facilities with industrial boilers that use the recovered wood to generate energy for use in place of non-renewable fossil fuels. The facility has been licensed by Metro since 1998; the term of the proposed license would extend through June 30, 2021.
McFarlane’s occupies just over 5.5 acres of land in Milwaukie, Oregon and is zoned Light Industrial (I2). The proposed use is allowed outright in this zone.
AUTHORIZATION UPDATE: JUNE 20, 2016
Metro issued a solid waste facility license renewal to McFarlane's Bark, Inc.
