Greentree Landfill is an MSW landfill and Permitted Centralized Treatment Facility that was permitted in 1986. The facility was most recently expanded in 2008. The facility is permitted by the Department of Environmental Protection to accept 5500 tons per day average and a maximum of 6000 tons in any single day. The facility currently accepts 3000 tons per day average. Municipal Solid Waste, Construction and Demolition Debris, Municipal and Industrial Sewage Sludges, non-hazardous liquid waste, asbestos, and residual wastes are received for disposal. The facility is permitted to accept liquid wastes for solidification. Additional services include non-hazardous liquids treatment and disposal, trailer and roll-off container storage. The facility offers trailer tipper service to unload intercompany and third party trailers. At current volumes the facility has airspace to 2048.
Greentree Landfill has a high Btu gas cleaning plant onsite operating since 2007. Currently, we are treating about 6,500 cubic feet per minute of landfill gas. After the cleaning process, about half of the landfill gas is sent down a 6.5-mile pipeline to a compressor station where it is tied into the National Fuel Interstate pipeline where it is sold as Green Power to power plants.
The facility is included in several County Solid Waste Plans, and has contracts with residual waste generators both in PA and surrounding states and accepts waste from Advanced Disposal subsidiaries and third party companies.

What is the purpose of a landfill?
The purpose of a landfill is to provide an effective way to dispose of waste material. Landfills are designed and operated under environmental regulations, providing a safe and efficient way to dispose of solid waste materials.
When properly managed, landfills can protect communities from potential contamination and help preserve scarce resources by reducing emissions and protecting surface and groundwater resources.
How do landfills work?
Landfills are typically constructed in layers, with each layer consisting of a protective liner and waste materials. The top layer consists of soil or non-degradable materials such as plastic to ensure that the contents remain contained within the landfill.
As additional waste is added to the landfill, it is compacted into a dense form and covered with soil or non-degradable cover material. This helps to minimize the release of odors and prevent the entry of pests into the landfill site. Additionally, leachate collection systems are installed to capture liquids that the decomposing waste materials may generate.
This liquid is then treated before being released back into the environment. Landfill gas-to-energy systems are also installed in some landfills to capture and convert the methane gas from decomposing waste into electricity.
As landfills reach capacity, they are typically closed off and monitored for environmental compliance before being rehabilitated or covered with soil. By taking these steps, communities can ensure that their landfills are effectively managed and do not threaten the environment.
What happens to the waste in a landfill?
The waste materials deposited into landfills undergo a process of decomposition over time. This process is known as biodegradation, which occurs as bacteria and other microorganisms break down the materials in the landfill.
As the materials decompose, they are converted into nutrient-rich soil that can be used for landscaping or landfill rehabilitation. Additionally, landfill gas-to-energy systems capture methane gas generated through this process and convert it into renewable energy.
By taking these steps, landfill operators can help ensure that landfill contents are managed responsibly and do not threaten the environment.
What kind of safety measures are taken at landfill sites?
Landfill sites are designed with special safety measures to protect the environment and nearby communities from potential health risks associated with landfill waste. These measures include landfill liners and leachate collection systems to prevent landfill waste from contaminating nearby soil and water.
Additionally, landfill gas-to-energy systems are typically installed in some landfills to capture and convert the methane gas from decomposing waste into electricity. Finally, landfill sites may also employ safety systems such as odor control, landfill compaction equipment, landfill covers, and landfill monitoring systems to ensure that landfill sites are managed responsibly.
By taking these steps, landfill operators can help protect the environment and nearby communities from potential health risks associated with landfill waste.
