Description
The City of Northampton operated the 50,000 TPY Northampton Landfill on a 50-acre site at 170 Glendale Road in Northampton, MA until May 17, 2013 when it closed for business and the final cap was installed. The facility opened in June 1969, has 2.9 million tons of waste in place, a maximum depth of 90 feet, and 39 acres under refuse. There is a gas collection system in place that consists of an enclosed flare installed in 2008, collection mains, and 44 gas collection wells. The city has a long-term contract with Ameresco, LLC to install, operate, and maintain a 0.8-MW electrical generation system that started up in 2008.
