Renewable Sonoma ends negotiations for organics processing facility with Zero Waste Sonoma

Renewable Sonoma, the company selected by Zero Waste Sonoma (ZWS) for the proposed development of an organics processing and compost facility, terminated negotiations with ZWS and with the City of Santa Rosa for the siting of the project on city-owned property located adjacent to the City’s Laguna Treatment Plant. Despite diligently pursuing many options, Renewable Sonoma was unable to secure sufficient investment financing to move the project forward during these challenging times. ZWS staff will meet with the ZWS Board of Directors’ Organics Processing Negotiations Ad Hoc Committee to discuss next steps and potential alternatives. Staff will return to the full ZWS Board in the near future to discuss options for long-term processing of organics materials collected from residents and commercial establishments.
