Rochelle Landfill, 1A & 1B Cell Expansion
The landfill expansion project was a 2 cell development that was approximately 16 acres in size. Excavated material was stockpiled for future closure operations. Clay was used from the excavation activities for the soil liner layer. Imported granular material from company owned quarries were used as drainage layer. Leachate collection pipe was installed which was then connected to the existing collection system. Multiple excavation crews were utilized to achieve the aggressive completion schedule and all work was completed on time and within budget.
