What is a Landfill?

A landfill provides trash disposal services for households and businesses and assists in maintaining public health and safety by finalizing the sanitation process for garbage and waste of all kinds. Depending on the type of landfill, you may dispose of household, industrial and organic wastes as well as coal ash and construction debris (in designated locations) in a safe and responsible manner.

Sanitation departments try to minimize landfill use by offering recycling programs. These organizations oversee landfill operations and schedule waste collection services. To manage landfills efficiently, some organizations use waste transfer and dumping stations for temporary trash storage before taking the waste to the landfill for final dumping. A landfill will usually refuse to accept sewage waste or fecal materials, hazardous waste, dead animals, toxic chemicals or other industrial waste without prior treatment.
