Rogue Disposal Dry Creek Landfill constructionDry Creek Landfill was opened in 1974. In 1998 the unlined portion of the landfill was closed and covered. Prior to that, construction began on cell #2, a fully lined facility with an engineering design that exceeds environmental standards set by the U.S. EPA. All necessary permits were obtained to accept municipal solid waste.

The liner system includes layers of 60-mil-thick textured HDPE material, low permeability soil and a leachate (rain water that filters through the trash) collection and removal system. Each lined cell that is constructed has approximately three years capacity and costs approximately $380,000 per acre.

When a cell has reached capacity it is covered with a system similar to the liner and costs approximately $350,000 per acre to close.

Dry Creek Landfill’s projected operational life exceeds 100 years under any scenario.

Rogue Disposal Dry Creek monitoring stationDry Creek Landfill is a regional facility with an active methane gas collection and control system in place and is currently accepting waste from six different counties. The facility produces electricity for 3,200 homes and this energy will continue to be produced for the next century based off of current methane forecast and closure schedule of the landfill.
