Mining out the old landfill. Part of the clean-up the Commission undertook at the old landfill area when it took it over in 2004. The reservoir that holds back the dam in the northwest corner of the landfill. Planting shelterbelt trees at the landfill site. About 700 had been planted by the end of 2009.
We are continually cleaning up the landfill site, including planting shelterbelt trees, which reduce damage from wind erosion, and catch snow in the winter.
Re-roofing jobs account for the vast majority of asphalt shingles. Vinyl siding lends itself to recycling because it is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) - a thermoplastic that can be repeatedly ground up, re-melted, and formed into a variety of new products. Disposing of a ton of wood waste at a wood processing facility may cost one-third the amount it costs to dispose of a ton of waste in a landfill. Businesses that generate wood waste can save money.
Outside contractors are involved in recycling wood and asphalt shingles and vinyl siding.
Chippers are brought in to take care of wood and branches.
