Berkeley County’s Landfill showcases the multiple benefits of ClosureTurf® for eliminating soil layers and erosion, reducing post-closure care, withstanding major weather events, and improving stormwater quality over a traditional Subtitle D vegetative cap. – by Krista Wiley
The Berkeley County MSW Landfill in Moncks Corner, SC is owned and operated by Berkeley County Water & Sanitation (BCWS), and has been in operation since 1999. Its eight cells encompass approximately 40 acres with an estimated in-place waste volume of 1.1 million cubic yards. When the first four cells totaling 10 acres were at capacity and ready to close, Berkeley officials turned to ClosureTurf, an EPA Subtitle D compliant landfill closure system specifically designed to eliminate soil erosion, reduce post closure maintenance costs, increase slope integrity and enhance landfill gas (LFG) management.
