Description of Services:Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) landfill for solid, nonhazardous residential, municipal, incinerator ash, remediation construction and demolition, sewage sludge waste, and nonhazardous industrial waste. The waste accepted is approximately comprised of 70% MSW, 20% other municipal wastes (such as incinerator ash and wastewater treatment sludge), and 10% residual (or industrial) waste. Some of the incoming materials, such as auto fluff, are used as daily cover. These materials, however, still count as part of the facility's permitted, incoming waste volume. Treatment of leachate generated by the GROWS, GROWS North, and the Tullytown Resource Recovery landfills; however, any other wastewater is not accepted.

Notes:

  • In the mid 1980's, the host community for the GROWS Landfill, Falls Township, turned down a proposal by Waste Management Inc. to expand the landfill. Waste Management Inc. went to the neighboring town of Tullytown and received permission from that municipality to construct and operate a new landfill. The Tullytown Landfill opened in July 1988. Since that time, Falls Township has been more receptive to expansions of the GROWS Landfill. This also explains why there are two very similar Subtitle D landfills with the same ownership only 2 miles apart.
  • The GROWS Landfill is close to capacity and is only accepting limited waste as it approaches itís permit expiration date in February 2010. Waste will continue to be accepted at the Tullytown and GROWS North landfills.
