Considering the fact that the area which provides disposal for CDD was originally a quarry significantly deeper than 100 feet, and considering that the quarry was filled with water which originally overflowed into Lily Pond (it doesn‛t anymore due to a strategically placed pumping facility and about $100,000 per year in wastewater treatment fees) we are lucky to have such reasonably cheap disposal so near. Reality is, however, it‛s more a remediation site than a landfill. As such, it is highly regulated and will have to be pumped and cared for generations to come.
In an effort to minimize future emissions of hydrogen sulfide from the landfill, we are encouraging the diversion of sheetrock from this waste stream. If possible, please keep sheetrock separate from other debris and deposit in the roll-off Demo Diversion Area which is adjacent to the access road of the landfill.
In an effort to conserve landfill space, we are encouraging the diversion of construction and demo wood from the landfill. To encourage this further, we offer a reduced price for loads that can be deposited as straight wood debris (see fee schedule). Very important to the survival of this program is the minimization of plastic in this stream and absolute prohibition of pressure treated and creosote treated wood. These two categories go to landfill only!
- No plastic sheet or tarps in the landfill – goes in trash
- No liquid waste of any kind
- Please unload in active area only
- No household trash
- No foam board – goes in trash
- No fiberglass insulation – goes in trash
- No Metal! It has significant $ value which is used to shrink our assessment to the tax base – you!
