    Chester County Solid Waste Authority recently completed several innovative projects which will be presented:


    Solar Panels: Panels were installed on top of the closed and capped Mountain Top Landfill, an unlined quarry fill. Once connected, the panels will produce 431.5 KW DC or 300 KW AC.


    ClosureTurf: Construction was recently completed on an 8-acre section of ClosureTurf, the third ClosureTurf installation at the facility. ClosureTurf is a three-component final cover system comprised of a structured geomembrane, an engineered turf, and a specialized sand infill. Use of this final cover system eliminates the layer of final cover soils necessary above geosynthetics.


    Roadway Reclamation: The main haul road through the landfill was reclaimed by milling down 15 inches while mixing in 7% by volume Portland Cement followed by a double asphalt chip seal. The process greatly reduces maintenance compared to a typical gravel roadway. The project also included radar investigation to find stormwater piping under the road and vacuum-truck cleaning of a 36-inch storm drain.

    Presentation and tour followed by networking lunch.

    The Millfair Compost and Recycling Center is an inter-municipal effort between Millcreek and Fairview Townships (Erie County) that is located on the border of the two municipalities. The 5-acre composting facility has been open since 2004 and receives approximately 25,000 visitors each year.



    Utilizing windrow-style composting methods, this facility accepts 1,500 tons of leaf waste and 5,000 tons of yard waste annually. The organic waste is processed into high quality compost and mulch products, which is then made available for sale back to residents, landscapers, and businesses of the community.

    Composting leaf and yard waste is one small way communities can conserve natural resources and close the loop on recycling organics.
