Landfill managers continuously seek increased efficiency and greater compaction and airspace, but as technology improves, some of the ways they achieve those ends have changed.

Coal Ash Management Forum

Presented by the Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) and the National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA), the conference aims to be a forum where both the utility and waste management sectors can share ideas, research, operations strategies and case studies on how to manage coal ash beneficially or in

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
