Geosysnthetic Clay Liners Used in Municipal Solid Waste Landfills, EPA 530-F-97-001

Adobe Acrobat PDF File || ASCII Text File || (About...)

This fact sheet describes new and innovative technologies and products that meet the performance standards of the Criteria for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills (40 CFR part 258). Geosynthetic clay liners represent a relatively new technology currently gaining acceptance as a barrier system in municipal solid waste landfill applications. This fact sheet provides information on this technology and presents case studies of successful applications.

Landfill Reclamation, EPA 530-F-97-001

Adobe Acrobat PDF File || ASCII Text File || (About...)

This fact sheet describes new and innovative technologies and products that meet the performance standards of the Criteria for Municipal Solid Waste Landfills (40 CFR part 258). Landfill reclamation is a relatively new approach used to expand municipal solid waste landfill capacity and avoid the high cost of acquiring additional land. This fact sheet provides information on this technology and presents case studies of successful reclamation projects.

GRITS/STAT 5.0 Software and Documentation

EPA's Groundwater Information Tracking System/Statistic Software (GRITS/STAT) is in wide use at waste management facilities implementing groundwater monitoring requirements under the RCRA Subtitle C (hazardous waste) and RCRA Subtitle D (municipal waste) programs. GRITS/STAT can be used at sites conducting groundwater monitoring to store, analyze and report groundwater data, and to conduct statistical tests to determine if regulatory thresholds have been met or exceeded. GRITS/STAT version 5.0 and its associated documentation were updated in July, 1997 and are available at this web site. Users seeking technical support on the use of GRITS/STAT may call the GRITS/STAT support line at (703) 448-6415. Users with general questions about GRITS/STAT may also call Hugh Davis at (703) 308-8633 (or at (davis.hugh@epamail.epa.gov)

List of Municipal Solid Waste Landfills

 

This list of municipal solid waste landfills (MSWLFs) is the third in a series developed by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Solid Waste. The original list was developed in conjunction with the 1986 "Census of State and Territorial Subtitle D Non-Hazardous Waste Programs." The 1986 list, which simply identified the name and location of MSWLFs in the United States, proved to be quite popular because it was the first time that a single list of MSWLFs nationwide had been developed. When the document was updated in 1992, it showed a decline in the number of MSWLFs from 7,683 to 5,345. Before the 1992 list was updated, however the final rule for solid waste disposal facility criteria (40 CFR Parts 257 and 258, October 9, 1991) was published.

The rule allowed a facility to comply only with final cover requirements if it stopped receiving waste within 24 months. Thus, it appeared timely to revise the list of active MSWLFs in 1995. As anticipated, this list shows a further decline in MSWLFs from 5,345 to 3,581 (Table 1).

The 1995 list is compiled from individual records that were collected from states and the U.S. territories. The quality of the information varies accordingly; that is some of the data may be incomplete or outdated, but were the best available at the time the information was requested. No attempt has been made to verify the accuracy of the individual lists. We wish to thank the regional, state and territorial officials who contributed their time and energy to provide these lists.

A general context for the list of MSWLFs is provided in Section Two of this report, including summaries of the types of information contained in each state's list. A comment section identifies selection criteria used to obtain the list of active MSWLFs from the submitted material. Each summary also includes a mail/telephone contact. Section Two is organized alphabetically by the full name of the state.

Section Three is the listing of active MSWLFs. Each entry includes the landfill name, town/city, county, state, and zip code, if such data were available. The section is organized alphabetically by the two-letter abbreviation for each state. Within each state, the list is organized by county name and then by landfill name.
