The purpose of the Municipal Solid Waste Innovative Technology Evaluation (MITE) program is to objectively evaluate innovative solid waste management technologies and transfer resulting information to municipalities and solid waste managers. The paper details the demonstration and the subsequent evaluation of the landfill mining, or as it is often called, landfill reclamation technology. Included among the results of the numerous tests conducted during the evaluation period is a waste characterization that was performed on all separated streams and physical and chemical analyses of the soil fraction for comparison to Florida State Compost Regulations. The other separated fractions (ferrous and plastic) were evaluated for their recycling market potential. During one week of the demonstration, air quality measurements were taken for a full range of contaminants. After testing was completed, the data were used to estimate the capital and operating costs of the system, and the processing cost per ton. The paper will discuss potential regulatory issues and developments since the evaluation has been completed.
