Trash is covered with Alternative Daily Coverage (ADC) at the end of each working day. At the end of each week, it is covered with soil. We perform annual surface emissions testing and quarterly gas migration testing. We use trained personnel to perform operation and maintenance of our landfill gas system to ensure that the system is operating properly. We use litter fence around the active disposal area to catch windblown litter. We have a crew of a landfill employee as supervisor and two inmates that perform daily litter pickup within the landfill perimeter. We also have a Landfill employee who is very active in picking up debris on Highway 125 from Elba to Highway 167 on a daily basis. In addition, we use a water truck to control dust on our paved and unpaved roadways.
