The Rapid City, S.D., landfill will soon undergo a $7 million expansion to extend its lifeline by about two decades. The landfill currently accepts approximately 450 tons of waste per day and only has one operating cell remaining.
The expansion, which is expected to be complete in August, will include the addition of two landfill cells.
