Municipal Solid Waste Landfills in Albert Lea, Minnesota

Municipal Solid Waste Landfills (MSW Landfills) receive common household refuse and non-hazardous commercial waste. The types of household refuse commonly associated with curbside collection programs are disposed of in MSW Landfills. MSW Landfills in Albert Lea, MN are highly regulated in order to minimize groundwater contamination, the accumulation of landfill gases, and other negative environmental impacts. A Bio-Reactor Landfill is a specific type of MSW Landfill that is designed to rapidly degrade the organic content in the waste stream.

Modern Landfills

Modern MSW facilities in Freeborn County have liners designed to protect from the infiltration of landfill leachate into the ground and groundwater, while older landfills may be required to install leachate collection systems to pump and treat leachate collected from the Albert Lea dump. Gas collection systems may also be installed to collect methane and other gases that accumulate in the dump site. Landfill gas is usually burned off with a flare system, and in some cases this process may be used to generate electricity.

Albert Lea Construction & Demolition Dump Sites

Construction and Demolition (C&D) and Bulky Waste Landfills accept a more limited range of waste materials than MSW Landfills. These Minnesota Landfills accept debris that results from construction projects and related materials that are considered cleaner than MSW.

Ash Ponds & Disposal Facilities

Ash ponds accept the ash that results from the incineration of solid waste. In many communities, Municipal Solid Waste is incinerated at a waste-to-energy plant. The solid waste is used as fuel for generating electricity and the ash residue is put into an Ash pond or disposal site. Albert Lea Ash disposal sites may accept other forms of special waste that are not permitted in other types of waste management sites.

Albert Lea Hazardous Waste Landfills

Hazardous Waste Facilities in Albert Lea are designed and permitted to accept non-liquid hazardous wastes such as PCB-contaminated materials.
