Waste Management's Elk River Landfill employs the latest advances in landfill technology. From selecting our landfill location to capping landfills that have been filled to capacity, every effort is made to ensure our operational integrity as well as the safety of the surrounding ecosystems.
As part of one of the largest network of landfills in the industry, Waste Management’s Elk River Landfill utilizes state-of-the-art liners, leachate collection, ground water monitoring and gas control systems, along with highly effective operational procedures, to ensure a pristine environment.
Designed and operated under highly regulated and prescribed procedures, our landfill is engineered to protect surface and ground water through the highest environmental control. We carefully maintain our site to ensure we meet or exceed all federal, state and local regulations.
