Landfill Wall Construction

Landfill Wall Construction

ACUA is expanding the life of the landfill in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, with the construction of mechanically stabilized earthen (MSE) berms which wrap around the exterior. The space between the newly constructed berm and the slope of the existing landfill is used as additional space to store solid waste. The project is ongoing and is separated into three phases.
Landfill Odor Control

Landfill Odor Control

The Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) solid waste landfill located in Egg Harbor Township, NJ, accepts trash from Atlantic County homes and businesses. The landfill began accepting waste in 1992 and is expected to contain approximately 9.9 million tons of garbage by closing.  

Odors naturally occur as trash decomposes in the landfill. As waste breaks down, it produces various gases. Carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane are the most prevalent. Other gases, such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), can also be found in smaller quantities. Wind direction, temperature changes and weather patterns impact the spread and intensity of these odors.
