Blue Ridge Landfill Management

Responsible landfill management involves the proper handling of landfill gas and liquids, which are byproducts of the decomposition of waste. It also requires science, engineering and technology to manage an evolving waste stream in a manner that is protective of the air, land and water upon which our communities depend.

Landfills are an essential part of the infrastructure necessary for a community to function, and their role is increasingly vital as our population grows and the number of active, permitted landfills declines.

As a subsidiary of Republic Services, an industry leader that owns and operates over 300 active and closed landfills nationwide, Blue Ridge Landfill understands that society expects landfills to be more environmentally responsible today than ever before, and we set the standard for quality landfill management. This, of course, involves the proper handling of a dynamic and evolving waste stream. It also increasingly demands greater expertise, more sophisticated capabilities and considerable resources.

At Blue Ridge, we have assembled a highly talented engineering and environmental management team. This cadre of experienced professionals uses science and data as the basis for decision making at Blue Ridge.

We believe that we are guardians of our environment and have a responsibility to regenerate our planet with the materials we are entrusted to handle every day. That is why we leverage the power of science, advanced technologies and innovation to responsibly operate Blue Ridge Landfill.
