Ontario Co. Landfill
Good morning. We have recently completed the installation of 20 new vertical gas wells which are now in the process of being connected to the existing gas collection system (and power plants). In parallel we are also now starting to begin the installation of new horizontal gas wells which will provide additional gas collection as we continue to abandon older gas wells as fill progression continues.

We are once again planning to undertake an additional expansion of the landfill gas collection system beginning in mid January pending approval from the NYSDEC. We are planning to add 15 new vertical gas wells into the current working area.
Lastly, we will be installing two new gas flares in late Spring 2015.
We are planning to undertake an additional expansion of the landfill gas collection system this year even though we just completed an expansion this year in June. We are anticipating the installation of 3 additional horizontal wells and 2 vertical wells. Construction and installation of the planned expansion will be taking place later this month and into October. Efforts are continuing with the covering of additional landfill gas collection system piping as well as efforts to begin pumping select gas wells to lower perched water levels and to enhance gas collection system performance in those areas.
Lastly, Our annual Household Hazardous Waste collection day is scheduled for Sat, Sept. 20th. Appointments must be made in advance and can be done so by calling 585-526-4420.
Greetings. The landfill gas collection system expansion project has been completed. The new horizontal and vertical gas wells have been installed and have been connected to the active system drawing the new gas into the on-site power production facilities to produce electricity. Efforts are continuing with the covering of landfill gas collection system piping as wells as efforts to begin pumping select gas wells to lower perched water levels and to enhance gas collection system performance in those areas.
Good afternoon. The Casella website was recently upgraded to include numerous changes. As a result of these changes the date headings for the updates provided below are unfortunately incorrect.
With Spring approaching we have secured New York State Department of Environmental Conservation approval to expand the active gas collection system. The upgrades include the addition of new vertical and horizontal gas collection lines within the current working area of the landfill. The improvements are expected to take place in early to mid April and will include drilling within the landfill in order for the vertical wells to be installed. Some temporary odors may be present during this time period. The gas that will be captured from the new improvements will be conveyed to the on-site power plants.
