Dane County, Wisconsin has ten years until its current landfill is full. The county is looking at the Yahara Hills Golf Course, a 36-hole property owned by the City of Madison, located across the street from the current landfill, as a way to expand its current landfill. The new landfill would have enough space until 2045. 

Phase one of the plan, which is estimated to cost $32 million, is to turn half of the golf course into a campus that includes an educational center, administrative offices, composting site and a business park that would create jobs diverting waste.  

If the landfill is approved, Dane County will work to build a part of the campus in the next few years and, within the next eight years, start construction on the additional landfill.
