Waste Treatment Facilities South Wake Landfill Located between Apex and Holly Springs, the South Wake Landfill is the only active municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill in Wake County. The Southwick Landfill provides waste disposal services to Wake County residents and businesses. The landfill was opened in 2008 and is expected to have a disposal capacity of more than 30 years. Location South Wake City Solid Waste Waste Landfill 6300 Old Smithfield Road, Apex HoursMonday-Saturday: 7am-4pmClosed: Sunday, New Years, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving , Christmas Eve (1:00 pm) and Christmas Day Acceptable Items Garbage trucks unload waste at the South Wake Landfill. The South Wake Landfill is only permitted to accept municipal solid waste from Wake County. MSW includes general household and commercial waste and other non-hazardous waste. The South Wake Landfill receives approximately 150 dump trucks per day, and more than 400,000 tons of waste per year. Landfill Design The South Wake Landfill was designed and constructed to protect public health and the environment. The South WakeLandfill is constructed with a thick bedding system designed to keep litter out of the environment. Landfill gas collection systems extract landfill gas and send it to gas energy landfills located next to the landfill. Leachate is stormwater that flows through the landfill, collected through a series of pipes and treated at the HollySprings Water Reclamation Plant. At the end of each day, litter is covered to reduce odor, control litter, and prevent littering. Workers install flashings to manage stormwater. LEACHATE COLLECTION PIPE INSTALLED TO COLLECT RAINWATER LEEPING INTO LANDFILL 12 WASTE LANDFILL
Landfill Environmental Monitoring The South Wake Landfill is carefully monitored to protect the environment and public health. Groundwater surrounding the landfill is regularly monitored through an extensive system of wells to ensure that the lining system is functioning as intended. The landfill also has a state air permit that requires regular sampling of methane emissions. Environmental monitoring of landfills continues long after the landfill is closed. The law requires MSW landfills to be monitored for an additional 30 years after closure. Close wells to monitor landfill gas collection. East Wake Transportation Station East Wake Transportation Station Location 840 Corporation Parkway, Raleigh Hours of Operation Monday-Saturday: 6am-3pm Closed: Sunday, New Year's Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve (noon) and Christmas garbage trucks to unload garbage at the East Wake About transfer station. The East Wake Transfer Station is a waste collection point. Municipal solid waste collected from routes in eastern and northern Wake County is offloaded and diverted onto larger tractor trailers for transportation to the South Wake landfill. By combining the load of several smaller refuse trucks into one tractor-trailer, refuse trucks save the time and cost of transporting waste to Southwick landfill. After the garbage truck unloads the garbage at the transfer station, the loader pushes the garbage onto the traction trailer. When the tractor trailer is full it is taken to the Southwick landfill. In addition to saving time and money, the transfer station reduces the number of garbage trucks traveling to and from the landfill, thereby reducing their impacts, such as carbon footprint and congestion near the landfill. 13 Disposal facilities Waste
Waste Gas Treatment Plants in Energy Landfill gas is a natural by-product of the decomposition of organic matter in municipal solid waste landfills. It contains about 50 percent methane and 50 percent carbon dioxide. Both gases occur naturally in small amounts in the environment, but landfills are the second-largest anthropogenic source of methane in the United States. Methane is a volatile and harmful greenhouse gas more than 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide. At higher concentrations, such as those produced by municipal solid waste landfills, landfill gas must be captured to prevent release into the environment. A well for collecting landfill gas. industrial fan. A fan and a torch are provided. Landfill gas power plant. At the South Wake Landfill, the gas collection well is a landfill owned and operated power plant that injects gas into the landfill. These wells are then connected to Ingenco. Once the gas enters the gas-fired power plant, it is connected to a mains network that connects to 18 remanufactured diesel engines that are industrial fans. Gas blowers create a vacuum that becomes landfill waste gas. Diesel engines are used to slowly extract gas from landfills. From here, since they don't burn the fuel but compress it, the landfill gas is piped to the gas-to-energy landfill, making the whole process much safer. The combination is burned in a flare (less demand if electricity is produced from gas in a power plant from a diesel engine). 4 megawatts of electricity - enough to power 4,000 peak-demand homes or 8,000+ low-demand homes. As the landfill fills with trash, it creates more gas. The plant has a generating capacity of up to 12 megawatts, enough to power as many as 24,000 homes.
Benefits of Gas Energy Treatment Plant Prevents harmful greenhouse gases from landfills from entering the atmosphere Provides local renewable resources for power generation Reduces county-level generation reliance on nuclear and fossil fuels through electricity sales Creates jobs and promotes economic growth. A tractor trailer's reconditioned diesel engine converts landfill gas into electricity.

Awareness and Education Program 86 Anti-Littering Campaign In 2008, the Wake County Board of Commissioners adopted a goal to address the growing problem of roadside litter. The 86it anti-littering campaign began in 2010 with a strategy of emphasizing the importance of civic engagement by focusing on positive littering action rather than littering. Since then, 86 has thrived by participating in community events, organizing cleanups, and providing litter groups to organize cleanups in their neighborhoods. The 86it anti-waste campaign stands out by engaging citizens in solutions, emphasizing the importance of individual responsibility for reducing waste in communities. Breaking an old littering habit is starting a new positive behavior, so it focuses on celebrating the positive and "curing" the littering behavior. Screenshot of 86it.com website. "86ables" (garbage bags, car magnets, and 86 it trash kits custom-made for local high school groups doing sticker cleanups) are available from 86it.com from trash pickers. Use the 86it junk kit.

Recycling in Wake County Ever wondered what happens to your trash when you leave it on the curb or drop it off at a recycling center? #1 Collection #1 Recyclables collected at the curb or drop-off point are taken to a Material Recovery Facility (or MRF - pronounced "murf"). An MRF is a dedicated facility that receives, separates and prepares recyclable materials for sale to manufacturers. What happens to your recycling? #4 Remanufacturing Once the processed material reaches the manufacturer, what happens next depends on the material. Aluminum can be used over and over again as #4 will not corrode or lose quality. Aluminum is used to make soda cans, airplanes or bicycles. In fact, 75 percent of all aluminum produced since 1888 is still in use. Likewise, there is no limit to the number of times glass can be recycled. Recycled glass is mainly used to make new containers. Plastic can be recycled into new containers, textiles, plastic lumber or carpet. In fact, recycling just five 2-liter bottles can produce one square meter of carpet. Paper and cardboard can be recycled into paper, packaging or tissues. 20 Recycling in Wake County

Wake County Trash Tours Trash is a part of our everyday lives and we all generate it. In Wake County, which started with 1 million people, it ended up producing 410,000 tons of household waste per year. As we drive our garbage trucks, modern garbage trucks pick up curbside rubbish and transport it to Station 1 on the day of collection. 1. This is only the first step in a long journey of garbage. #2 East Wake Transfer Station or South Wake Landfill, depending on where you live. The bulldozer spreads the garbage evenly, and the large compactor rolls over the garbage several times to reduce the air and space between the garbage and achieve a higher compaction rate. At the end of each day #6, compacted litter is covered to minimize odor, control litter, and deter scavengers. #7 Landfill is filled in sections. Once the compartment is full, close it with a thick plastic liner to completely seal the trash. Add another layer of soil, then plant special grasses to control erosion. Due to anaerobic conditions (absence of oxygen), the waste decomposes very slowly. Garbage will remain in landfill #8 indefinitely. 22 Wake County Garbage Tours
At the East Wake Transfer Station, waste is offloaded from dump trucks and reloaded onto large tractor trailers for transport to the South Wake landfill. By combining the load of several Tractor Trailer dump trucks in East #3 into one tractor trailer, it reduced the number of Wake transfer stations and the number of trips to and from the landfill, saving local dump trucks wasted time, Operating costs and reducing our south wake up to landfill. Has a carbon footprint. All trucks are weighed on scales after entering the landfill. #4 The truck then drives to the face of the landfill and unloads the waste. When the trucks leave the yard, they reweigh #5 on the scale and issue a ton ticket. When the landfill reaches capacity, it is dumped into the trash. Restricted and regulated for at least 30 years. Landfills can be given a second life, such as the North Wake landfill in North Raleigh, which is now a park. #9 Landfill gas is produced when organic matter in landfills slowly decomposes. The process releases methane and carbon dioxide gases throughout the landfill through a vacuum system, transporting them to the gas-to-energy landfill located adjacent to the SouthWake landfill. At this facility, landfill gas is converted to electricity and used to power homes and businesses. 23 Trash's Journey in Wake County
NORTH Wake PARK Landfill The North Wake Landfill disposed of most of Wake County's household waste for more than 20 years until the site reached capacity. 9300 Deponie Drive, Raleighand closed in 2008. With disposal operations at a standstill, it became clear that there was a great hour opportunity to turn the location into a community daily, 8am to 8pm.
