Under the general direction and supervision of the solid waste director or designee, the landfill operator assists in the operation and maintenance of the solid waste baling facility, landfill, equipment, vehicles, and other solid waste projects.

Landfills have been identified by regulators and policy-makers as significant sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Historically, the determination of methane emission rates has been based on assumptions regarding landfill gas (LFG) generation rates, LFG collection system efficiencies, and methane oxidation in landfill cover soils.

Safer, Faster, and Smarter

But did you ever stop to think about it-I mean really think about it? In order for us to have this expectation-that we could put massive machines to work and then just expect them to perform-someone, somewhere did a lot of work. Yes, before the RFP and the sales person,

Flagship Landfill Sets the Pace for LFG

Flagship Landfill Sets the Pace for LFG

By David Kaminski The City of Denton Landfill at ECO-W.E.R.C.S. (waste-to-energy, recycling, composting and solar) is a shining example of a modern municipal waste management facility. Over the last decade, ECO-W.E.R.C.S. has evolved from traditional solid waste landfill to a true materials management system. A single-stream MRF (operated onsite by

Landfill Odors: I See, Therefore I Smell

Landfill Odors: I See, Therefore I Smell

Written by Neal Bolton   Landfill gas emissions come in two varieties: those you can smell…and those you can’t.  By a wide margin, the majority of landfill gas falls into the “can’t smell” category; it is odorless.  The gas generated at a typical landfill consists of an approximate 50-50 ratio of

Through the Years: Moments of Decision

In 1962, six sanitation workers in southern California incorporated an effort to share information on solid waste practices, notably safety. They called it the Governmental Refuse Collection and Disposal Association (GRCDA). There was no thought at the time of creating chapters. But word of its existence caught on and its

A Step Ahead of Downtime

A Step Ahead of Downtime

Your success at minimizing the impact of downtime is directly related to the level of maintenance your machines receive. In this regard, ignorance of specific maintenance issues is no excuse. Ignoring any maintenance activity or safety practice-no matter how obscure-can still contribute to failure of the system. And the responsibility

One of the Fine Points: Waste Compaction

One of the Fine Points: Waste Compaction

You’ve heard it before…and will again: Waste compaction is a foundational part of sound, efficient landfill operations. And lots of effort has gone into ways to pack the most trash into a fixed space. Machine manufacturers, as well as specialty manufacturers of compactor wheels and teeth, are continually improving their
