Questions to Ask About Landfills and Sanitary Services

There is a growing awareness about responsible waste disposal. To find out what sanitary services are right for you and the environment, you will most likely need to learn some basic facts to find out what landfills and sanitary services are right for your needs. Here are a few questions you should consider asking before deciding where and how to dump your garbage.

  • What sanitary products or services are available?
    If you are researching garbage dumps, you may want to find out what types of waste they process, such as hazardous waste, recycling, commercial or private disposal. Sanitary disposal services that offer a wider variety of options and provide disposal bins, will be more likely to have the specific solutions to suit your needs.

  • How much will it cost?
    It’s a good idea to get a written estimate of the cost before deciding how to manage your trash. You should also ask if there are any extra costs or any additional work that may be required. You’ll want to get a good idea of the overall price of service before it is started. This will ensure that the work is done according to your budget.

  • Does recycled paper help reduce landfill waste?
    Recycling paper is a good way to save landfills because paper takes longer to break down than organic matter such as food, lawn materials, etc. Also, the high volume of paper that people throw away fills up landfills quickly, reducing the amount of space available for garbage that can not be recycled.

  • How should I decide on a medical waste solution?
    Make sure the service has compliance experts who maintain adherence to federal, state and local regulations so that your business or organization is always in compliance, from collection, to treatment and disposal.

    Landfills, also known as dumps, are places where waste is deposited. Many cities and towns have landfills, at a central location where private and municipal rubbish disposal companies dump the trash they collect and recycle throughout the day. Sanitary landfills are a little different from standard landfills, in that these sites isolate certain harmful waste from the rest of the environment until it has been deemed safe. So what is considered safe waste? This occurs when waste has successfully biodegraded to a biological, chemical, and physical level. Isolation of this waste is necessary to protect public health. Such landfills contain certain universal components, such as bins, compactors, and other machinery. Landfills may contain anything from construction debris to electronics. Solid and chemical waste both need to be handled with care, as they can pose a hygiene and environmental hazard. Sanitary landfills generally only handle solid waste, which is allowed to decompose naturally in a controlled environment. The goal is to prevent spill over into land beyond the garbage dump site, and to contain it within defined boundaries. Ground water contamination is also avoided by the digging of monitoring wells outside the perimeter. Workers spread the solid waste in layers and compact it to make the covered area as small as possible, which helps reduce the possibility of pests being attracted to the garbage disposal. How well and often people in the area recycle, along with the surrounding landscape, both help to determine the lifecycle of a particular landfill, which is usually about 20 years. Sanitary landfills need to be properly managed and maintained in order to operate efficiently.
