Willmar, Minn. - The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has scheduled a public meeting for 6 p.m., Wednesday, April 11, at the Roseville Town Hall in Hawick, to present information and take questions about a change in the operation of the C&D Landfill.
Since 2009, C&D Landfill, Inc. has operated a Class I demolition landfill on about 4.1 acres of a 41-acre parcel northwest of Hawick, across Highway 23. In January the MPCA approved the company’s request for a Class II demolition landfill permit. During the public notice period for the permit change, the MPCA received a request for a public information meeting.
As a Class II demolition landfill, C & D is allowed to accept additional wastes, including asbestos-containing materials; previously affixed carpet and carpet padding from construction, remodeling, repair and demolition buildings; demo-like industrial wastes composed of wood, concrete, porcelain fixtures, shingles or window glass; plastic sheeting from construction or remodeling projects; nonrecyclable cardboard packaging mixed with other construction and demolition waste in a dumpster; and fiberglass, such as wash tubs, hot tubs, wash basins, or other fiberglass structures.
The landfill has an engineered liner on the bottom, a leachate-collection system above the liner system, and a surrounding groundwater-monitoring system. As a condition of the permit, the MPCA and Kandiyohi County require that the facility establish a financial assurance for the proper operation, closure, postclosure care and potential corrective action.
