Landfills - Questions to Ask

If you are a waste removal company looking for a landfill or you are simply a member of the community who wants to know more about where your trash and garbage is going, then you might consider contacting your local landfill. Try asking them some of the following questions to find out more information.

  • Where are you located?
    It will be helpful to find the location of the landfill in proximity to you. Living closely to a dump means dealing with the trash, as well as fumes that is emitted from the landfill. If you a business owner, the location will matter as well. You will want to know how far you have to travel to dispose of your garbage, recycling and hazardous waste.

  • Do you meet all current EPA regulations and standards?
    Because it is possible for landfills to have a negative environmental impact, they must meet certain regulations. Make sure that the landfill properly disposes of all hazardous materials and knows how to manage all types of solid waste. You can also ask if they use the gases as an energy source.

  • Are you associated with a recycling center?
    Not all landfills recycle or reuse the materials that are dumped in them. However, many do work with other centers to recycle paper, plastic or glass products that will not decompose on their own.

  • How do you manage the garbage that is taken to your dump?
    Landfills have different ways of handling the amount of waste that is taken to them. Some simply allow it to biodegrade. Others use compactors to create more space and condense the existing materials. In addition to the compactors, they can also use incinerators to get rid of some of the solid waste and transform it into reusable energy.

    Landfills abound in just every city and town. They are necessary for useful gas and therefore energy production, plus they provide a safe site for storing liquid and solid waste. Clay liners hold the hazardous or toxic waste, which is compacted and covered daily. This is also where waste can decompose and biodegrade over time. Professionals on site run the gamut from incinerator operators to managers.

    These professionals manage the yard and ensure all operation go off without a hitch. Good management and oversight skills are necessary, as are solid communication and team management skills. They should also be skilled in how to safely handle and dispose of all kinds of trash and garbage, with strict adherence to local and federal regulations.

    Landfills may also be located in the same facilities as recycle plants, which is where paper, glass, and plastic go for recycling in an effort to reduce and reuse. Many landfills offer community clean-up days where members of the community can come together to clean up the town and transport and dispose of trash to the dump. Leaf and yard waste collections may be offered in the spring and fall by municipal garbage collectors as well.

    Landfills may offer tours of the industrial facilities for interested members of the public, coupled with recycle promotions such as field trips for school children. Cities and towns often post their collection schedules on their websites so that residents know when and where to put out their trash and recycling.

    Landfill owners should employ all efforts necessary to protect the local ecosystems when operating dumps. This means attending environmental safety board meetings, answering residents’ concerns, and protecting wildlife in the area through various safeguards.
