Ontario County landfill manager Casella Waste Systems has started importing clay for the upcoming construction project at the landfill. The project will expand the landfill operation on 43.5 additional acres within the landfill site in the town of Seneca.
The new section is expected to be ready to accept waste this year. Casella is permitted to take an average of 2,999 tons of trash daily, or just under 1 million tons of trash a year.
Casella also stated in a notice that various construction materials including geomembrane liner and textile rolls and precast concrete manholes will be coming into the landfill beginning in late March or early April depending on the weather.
