Good afternoon! As part of the ongoing south slope improvement projects at the landfill, contractors will be working at the facility this Sunday (November 3).
The recent high week have made it difficult to deploy the rolls of synthetic needed to finish the exposed cap, which has made this Sunday work necessary to stay on schedule.
The proposed work for Sunday will be confined to the installation of the geosynthetics only. As such, the only piece of heavy equipment that will be used will be the lift for deployment of the rolls. If you have any questions about the ongoing construction efforts please call the landfill office at 585.526.4420.

Good afternoon. The Ontario County Landfill is improving our infrastructure and we wanted you to know. Over the course of the next 9 weeks landfill contractors will be making several improvements to the landfill gas collection and stormwater diversion systems. The planned gas collection improvements will involve the installation of an 18" gas header along the south and west slopes of the operational landfill. This 18" header will replace the existing 12" header system. Additionally, exposed synthetic capping will be expanded along the above referenced slopes. After the gas work is completed the stormwater diversion swales along the bottom of these slopes will be reconstructed to ensure that stormwater continues to be effectively managed.
These improvements will allow us to do an even better job of collecting landfill gas, using it to produce electricity and reduce our greenhouse gas footprint. We’ll also be able to better manage how stormwater moves around and off the site.
During this project, you might notice a solid waste or gas odor in the immediate vicinity of the landfill. This odor will be temporary, and we’ll be making every effort to end each day’s construction activities in such a way as to limit odor leaving the site.
Should you have any questions, please call the landfill office at (585) 526-4420 and ask for Bob Walls or Carla Jordan.

Good afternoon. Landfill management has been notified by the landfill gas to energy facility staff that the power plant went down at 4:33PM this afternoon due to a utility trip. The utility trip was caused by strong storms in the area. The LFGTE Facility was unable to go back online due to downed lines in the vicinity. During the plant down time, landfill staff powered up one of the onsite flares so that landfill gas could continue to be collected and combusted efficiently.
As of the time of this message, approximately 6:19PM power plant staff have received word from the utility that they may begin to power back up. According to the plant employees, it is anticipated that the plant will be fully operational within the next hour.

Good afternoon. Landfill management has been notified by the landfill gas to energy facility staff that the power plant went down around 10AM this morning due to a utility trip. The utility trip was caused by strong storms in the area. As of 12PM this afternoon, all but 2 engines were back online and operational. The power plant staff will continue to diligently work on getting the additional 2 engines up and running. In the mean time, landfill staff have powered up one of the onsite flares so that landfill gas may continue to be collected and combusted efficiently.

Good afternoon. Expansion of the landfill gas collection system will occur over the course of the next two weeks. Construction contractors will be mobilizing to the site tomorrow morning (Tuesday July 9th). 7 vertical gas wells will be installed in an effort to continue the efficient collection of the landfill gas. It is expected that the installation effort will take approximately 2 weeks. However, the timeline for this activity may vary due to weather coniditions experienced at the site. During the construction process intermitant gas odors may be noticed around the landfill property. Should you have any questions please contact the landfill office at 585.526.4420 and ask for Robert Walls or Carla Jordan. Thank you.
