Grand Island Regional Landfill Cell 3 Construction is currently underway. This is a $3.3 million project to construct 14 acres of landfill liner and leachate collection system and is being paid from Solid Waste Division cash reserves. Van Kirk Brothers Contracting from Sutton, NE is the general contractor for this important project and is scheduled to be completed in October.
The Grand Island Landfill Phase I development is comprised of four cells (Cells 1, 2, 3, and 4) of lateral expansion that are located within a 52 acre landfill footprint. Cell 1 was constructed in 1993 and Cell 2 was constructed in 1998. Landfilling will continue in Cells 1 and 2 until intermediate and final grades are achieved. Cell 3 will be constructed when filling in Cells 1 and 2 nears completion within the next several years. Cell 4 will be constructed when filling in Cell 3 nears completion or as facility operations warrant.
Cell 3 liner construction is currently under design, with construction anticipated to begin in the Fall of 2017 or Spring of 2018.
