Landfill Disposal in Cincinnati FAQs:

How is a landfill different from a dump?

Solid waste landfills are highly engineered structures designed to protect human health and the environment by properly disposing of trash.  Landfills have several liners to prevent trash from reaching soil or water. They also have environmental safeguards in place to remove and destroy landfill gas. 

What is a sanitary landfill?

A sanitary landfill is a place where nonhazardous trash is disposed of in a way that’s safe for the environment and the community at large. 

What does a landfill site look like?

All of Rumpke's landfills are built in sections called “cells”, which are capped with a liner system similar to the one placed at the bottom of the landfill. Once the final cap has been installed, the landfills are monitored for at least 30 years. The bottom of the landfill features layers of gravel as well as intermittent leachate pipes designed to siphon leachate from the landfill and transfer it to a local water treatment facility. 

On the outside, Rumpke partners with energy companies to capture landfill gas as natural gas. Currently, our Rumpke Sanitary Landfill is the largest landfill gas-to-pipeline energy production facility in the world.
