Solid Waste Management Landfills


The county has consolidated a waste management method that involves consolidating waste through a series of pipes assembled at the bottom of the land fill, the taps are perforated to ensure optimum aeration and decrease the release of toxic gases. The pipes also allow leachate to easily discharge from the landfill into a secure retention pond before being transferred to a nearby sewage facility for treatment and release. It has a comparative advantage over other waste management formulae because 70-100 tons of waste will be managed daily in addition to a leachate
