This report presents findings from an analysis of 45 landfills and associated transfer stations, balers, shredders, and transportation networks. The analysis of the sites attempted to determine how much it costs to build and operate a landfill and which factors have the greatest impacts on those costs. The studied landfills ranged in size from under 100 to over 5,000 tons per day and were located across the continental United States. A primary concern of the study was to determine the reduction in landfill cost from waste baling or shredding. The report presents the findings from the analysis, the implications of those findings and a methodology designed for use by local communities in determining their most cost-effective disposal system.
