The Tour will cover landfill operations regarding waste recycling, and operations and management of the Miramar landfill gas collection system.
Landfills are a highly regulated and engineered facilities that are utilized to keep disposal waste separated from the land and water in the surrounding area. Modern landfills are composed of cells that are filled with waste which generate methane gas as a by-product of the decomposition process. Methane gas if not collected has the ability to cause subsurface fires and contribute to poor air quality. The methane gas that is collected through horizontal and vertical wells within the waste is directed to onsite treatment facilities. Depending on the quality of the gas, the gas is either treated or diverted to an electrical generating facility. The electrical energy is typically either used to supplement landfill operations or delivered to the local electrical grid.
