HISTORY

The Rowan County Solid Waste Landfill has been in operation since December 1989. It is a 415 ton per day landfill. The landfill has a life expectancy of 50+ years at our current disposal rates.

The landfill is constructed on a clay liner and an HDPE liner that protects the groundwater from being contaminated by the solid waste. Any fluid that drains through the landfill is collected and held in a lagoon. It is then pumped to a waste water facility for treatment.

The landfill is self-supporting and does not operate from taxes.
