Landfill
General Overview
The Solid Waste Division operates the City-owned landfill located approximately 1.5 miles north of the City limits on North Ninth Street. The landfill serves the City of Laramie as well as residents in rural Albany County. City collection crews, one private company, the University of Wyoming, and the general public use this facility to dispose of all solid waste generated in this area.

Volume & Organization
The annual volume received at the landfill is approximately 72,000 cubic yards or 36,400 tons of solid waste. There is one attendant on site and one to three equipment operators each day. It encompasses 250 acres and is a Type I permitted facility. The landfill utilizes a multiple-trench design and haul-back method of operation. The annual budget for this operation is $1,204,349.

Remaining Life Expectancy
The landfill has a remaining life expectancy of 40 years at current disposal rates. In the last 10 years, environmental concerns have resulted in significant regulatory changes in the landfill industry. The Solid Waste Division is pleased to report that this landfill meets all current Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, thereby assuring protection of the area's land, water, and air resources.
