The Canton, Ga.-based Green Group said in a news release the projects include the Black Mallard Disposal landfill in North Dakota; an environmental park that will include a landfill and recycling operation in Texas; and a landfill and other environmental work operation in Wyoming, the company said in a news release.
In North Dakota, Black Mallard Disposal will be located in Alger Township. Green Group submitted a pre-application to the North Dakota Department of Health for the project that will include an oil and natural gas exploration and production landfill. The 240-acre site will accept gas and oil exploration and production waste, petroleum contaminated soils and other exploration wastes.
The 130 Environmental Park, located in Caldwell County, Texas, will be a mixed-use development project that will include a municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill, a facility for processing recyclable materials and an industrial park. The company has filed Parts I and II of its landfill permit application with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
The Wyoming project, Grasslands Environmental, will be located on 570 acres in Converse County and include an oil and natural gas exploration and production landfill, a commercial oilfield waste water disposal facility, a non-potable water supply well, and a Class I injection well. The company expects the facility to become operational in phases during 2014, beginning with the commercial oilfield waste water disposal facility next spring.
The new projects include multimillion dollar investments in local communities and development of key infrastructure to support traditional landfill and oil and natural gas exploration and production landfills, the company said.
“Green Group Holdings continues to expand our presence across the United States, providing innovative project designs, environmental permitting, and recycling and waste facilities operations,” said Ernest Kaufmann, Green Group president.
In addition to these three new projects, Green Group owns and operates facilities at Arrowhead Landfill in Uniontown, Ala., and has operating contracts for Mesa County Landfill in Grand Junction, Colo.; Brooks Construction and Demolition (C&D) Landfill in Wichita, Kan.; Northeastern New Mexico Regional Landfill in Wagon Mound, N.M.; and Layon Landfill in Inarajan, Guam.
