||This 16th annual report on municipal solid waste disposal and remaining landfill capacity is arranged by Illinois EPA administrative regions. Featured are specification pages describing the chief characteristics of 57 municipal solid waste landfills; their status (active, inactive, closed, under development); locations and hours of operation; tipping fees; quantities of wastes received in 2000, 2001 and 2002; remaining capacities on Jan. 1, 2002, and Jan. 1, 2003; solid waste management fees paid in 2002; names, addresses and phone numbers of landfill owners and operators. Quantities reported by landfills are given in gate cubic yards; as a convenience to the reader, those volumes are divided by 3.3 to provide rough equivalents in tons. The report also includes scaled-down specifications for 99 municipal solid waste transfer stations and 54 compost facilities. During 2002, 51 landfills reported receiving 54.6 million gate cubic yards of waste. This volume was two million gate cubic yards more than the total received during 2001, a 3.8 percent increase. As of Jan. 1, 2003, 51 landfills reported remaining capacities totaling 700.9 million gate cubic yards, or 16.8 million gate cubic yards less than on Jan. 1, 2002, a decline of 2.3 percent. Dividing wastes disposed during 2002 by capacity remaining on Jan. 1, 2003, suggests a landfill life expectancy in Illinois of 13 years, at current (2002) disposal rates, barring capacity adjustments, until capacity is depleted.
