The landfill is our last resort for solid waste disposal. The landfill we have is different than a dump in that it uses a sophisticated liner system to keep trash and leachate ("garbage juice") out of the ground. We only put ash from combustion, construction debris and residue with limited energy value (such as glass, grit and dirt) into the landfill. By implementing waste-to-energy and through your proper recycling, we've extended the life of our landfill. The landfill is now projected to last through 2054.
