Landfill Product Solutions™
Selling airspace is what drives profit for a landfill, making it the most precious asset and biggest conservation challenge. Airspace is the amount of space related to capacity and usable life of a landfill. Landfills want to increase airspace while at the same time extending the life of the landfill. Typically, landfills control airspace and remain in EPA compliance* by compacting solid waste into compressed pods called cells and using a daily cover.
Each cubic yard of dirt that is used for daily cover results in a permanent loss of revenue on space that cannot be sold. FINN’s Alternative Daily Cover takes up 24 times less space than dirt.
Finn offers a number of landfill solution products, including Waste-Cover™, Enviro-Cap™ for ADC, BioStreme™, and AirStreme™ for odor control and Hydro Blend 1200 to establish vegetation on landfill slopes.
Benefits of Using Alternative Daily Cover (ADC)*:
- FINN ADC’s do not consume airspace and meet or exceed federal requirements*
- Minimizes disease vectors and animal attraction, including birds
- Controls leachate and erosion
- Reduces fire hazard potential
- Minimizes wind-blown litter
- Reduces noxious odors
- Provides an aesthetic appearance
- Allows accessibility regardless of weather
*Federal and State regulations require that landfills cover their solid waste daily with a minimum of six inches of dirt. At the end of each day a cover must be applied to seal compacted trash preventing noxious odors, spreading litter and access to pests, such as birds, rats and insects.
