The responsible management of our landfills are critical to both our health and well-being and the health of our environment. We ensure safe, responsible and eco-friendly waste disposal by adhering to strict regulations, contributing significantly to conservation efforts and fostering a sustainable future for generations to come.
Waste Connections' Sustainable Landfills
Each Waste Connections landfill is engineered and managed to protect the environment and responsibly serve our local communities. Our sites are strategically located in geographically-designated safe areas. We often enhance the surrounding areas by creating wetlands and public trails.
Reduce our carbon footprint
Our landfill sites help reduce our carbon footprint and our reliance on fossil fuels. We harvest methane gas - a clean burning fossil fuel alternative - at some of our sites as a renewable source of energy. This methane gas powers homes and businesses in our communities, as well as some of the trucks that pick up your garbage.
Keeping groundwater safe
We closely monitor the groundwater to make sure there is no contamination. A composite liner at Waste Transfer Station Facilities protects the groundwater from leachate – a material formed by containing contaminants picked up through the leaching of soil.
Waste Transfer Station Facilities
Waste transfer stations are facilities where municipal solid waste is temporarily unloaded from collection vehicles. It is then briefly held before being reloaded onto larger, long-distance transport vehicles for transportation to landfills or other treatment or disposal facilities.
Public and Commercial Garbage Dump
Our garbage landfill sites can take care of your solid waste - no matter your needs. Whether you have a spring cleaning project or have commercial needs Waste Connections has the facilities, the experts and the professional services to help you dispose of your waste safely and responsibly.
