Lake County, Ohio - Utilities

LandFill

    The Lake County Solid Waste Facility in Painesville Township provides solid waste disposal. The entire landfill site includes 400 acres of vacant land. Only 250 of these acres are presently incorporated in the landfill operation licensed by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA). The 250 acres are divided into four waste cells, three of which are filled and capped, and the fourth that is in current operation. The site has space for expansion that will allow operation of the site as a landfill for approximately 12 more years without expansion. The general operation of the landfill is the responsibility of County Personnel. This includes maintenance of the closed waste cells, compliance reporting to the OEPA, and periodic landfill license renewal. County personnel also operate the truck scales used to weigh incoming loads for calculation of tipping fees. Most of the waste comes from contract haulers that are billed on a monthly basis; however our operators handle cash receipts from residents and other occasional haulers.
