How the Landfill Operates
A landfill is developed in phases and new cells are constructed as needed. Cells are lined with plastic liners. Waste is brought to the landfill by vehicles that collect it from households and businesses throughout the county.
Vehicles are weighed at the scales and directed to the proper area for disposal.
The waste is compacted by heavy equipment. At the end of each day waste is covered with an artificial cover by landfill personnel.
A leachate pond collects liquid that has been filtered through the decomposed waste. Sedimentation ponds collect rain water run off.
