  Landfill Cells 

  • Construction of landfill cells 1, 2 and 3 were completed in October 2006 and totaled approximately 23.6 acres. Cell 5 was completed in 2010 and is approximately 9.3 acres, Cell 6 was completed in 2014 and is about 8.95 acres. 
  • Construction of the remaining cells will be phased in throughout the life of the landfill.

  Stormwater Detention Basins

Series of basins that collect stormwater, not leachate, for controlled discharge to streams to prevent flooding.

  Staged Sediment Control System

 Series of shallow ponds that collect sediment, i.e. silt/sand, from stormwater to prevent silting of streams.

  Office Building & Scale

  • Regional Landfill Offices
  • Scale house to control access to site and weigh incoming waste.

↑ TOP

  Maintenance and Storage Buildings

  • Buildings for the maintenance/storage of landfill equipment, facilities for landfill personnel, and landfill office.
  • Building for storage of sand for ice control on landfill roads.

  Leachate Pump Station

Leachate pump station collects leachate from landfill cell's liner system and pumps to leachate storage tanks.

↑ TOP

  Leachate Storage Tanks & Loadout Building

Two, 1.3 million gallon dual containment tanks to store the leachate collected by the liner systems. Leachate is pumped into tankers for transportation and disposal at a waste water treatment facility.

Landfill Gas Area

Consists of a landfill gas powered electrical generation building operated by WMRE and currently utilizing two engines. There are also two twin landfill flares employed to destroy excess landfill gas not used by the engines.
