Blog Update from The City of Decatur/Morgan County Landfill
Today’s landfills must follow strict government regulations that address the issues of yesterday’s landfills. While regulations make landfills safer for the environment and nearby communities, modern engineering has also helped landfills become more environmentally-beneficial parts of the national waste management system. Our landfill captures byproducts of the waste’s decomposition and converts them into a valuable alternative energy source. We have around 125 gas wells, and we produce an average of 1700kW. That is enough to power a little over 1500 residential homes in the surrounding community.
The Decatur/Morgan Regional Landfill, 500 Landfill Drive, Trinity AL 35673, is available for the use of our residents and for commercial waste disposal. Our hours of operation are from 6:00 am – 4:00 pm, Monday – Friday, and 7:00 am – 11:30 am on Saturday.
