Class II Landfills Acceptable Waste

 

The Sheridan County Landfill is licensed as a Class II facility and landfarm. The facility can accept Group II, Group III and Group IV waste and contaminated soils.

 

Group II Waste: Group II wastes include decomposable wastes and mixed solid wastes containing decomposable material, but excludes regulated hazardous wastes.

 

Examples (but are not limited to the following):

(A) Municipal and household solid wastes such as garbage and putrescible (spoilable) organic materials, paper, cardboard, cloth, glass, metal, plastics, street sweepings, yard and garden wastes, digested sewage treatment sludges, water treatment sludges, ashes, dead animals, offal, discarded appliances, and hospital and medical facility wastes provided that infectious wastes have been rendered non-infectious to prevent the danger of disease.

(B) Commercial and industrial solid wastes such as packaging materials or solid industrial process wastes that are chemically or biologically decomposable, contaminated soils, crop residues, manure, chemical fertilizers and emptied pesticide containers than have been triple rinsed or processed by methods approved by the Department of Environmental Quality.

 

Group III Waste: Group III wastes include wood waste and non-water soluble solids. These wastes are characterized by their general inert (not chemically reactive) nature and low potential for adverse environmental impacts.

 

Examples (but are not limited to the following):

(A) Inert (not chemically reactive) solid waste such as unpainted brick, dirt, rock and concrete.

(B) Clean, untreated, unglued wood materials, brush, unpainted or untreated lumber and vehicle tires.

(C) Industrial mineral wastes which are essentially inert (not chemically reactive) and non-water soluble and do not contain hazardous waste constituents.

 

Group IV Waste: Group IV wastes include construction and demolition wastes and asphalt. No regulated hazardous wastes are allowed in this classification.

 

Contaminated Soils: “Contaminated soil” means soil, rock, dirt or earth that has been made impure by contact, commingling or consolidation with organic compounds such as petroleum hydrocarbons. This does not include soils contaminated solely by inorganic metals that meet the definition of hazardous waste.
