Flathead County landfill

Plastic recycling in the Flathead Valley will end on February 15. As a result, recyclers will need to toss plastics and steel cans in the trash.
Flathead County Solid Waste

The Flathead County Landfill currently has a gas-to-energy project where methane gas is collected to power a generator instead of being burned off.

Waste management officials recently learned more about how to use the waste from septic tanks to make trash decompose faster, and produce more energy.

St.Clair County in Michigan has about 50,000-septic tanks- residences or businesses not hooked up to a sewer system and therefore using septic tanks to collect their waste.

Those tanks need to periodically be pumped.
