Monitoring and Inspections

Random Load Inspections

Random incoming trucks and vehicles are screened for prohibited and restricted wastes. Unacceptable wastes are returned for proper disposal.

Landfill Monitoring

Federal and state environmental regulations require landfill operators to monitor groundwater, storm water and landfill gas.

Seven groundwater monitoring wells are sampled twice a year to determine if landfilling activities are negatively impacting groundwater quality. All storm water running off the landfill is diverted into a storm water detention pond and sampled prior to being discharged.

Landfill gas monitoring points are positioned around the perimeter of the landfill and sampled quarterly to detect the presence of methane and other landfill gases
