Since 2010, Randolph County Government has been considering the construction of a new regional Subtitle D Landfill as a new revenue source for the County. The permitting process, which is administered by NC Dept. of Environment & Natural Resources (NCDENR), is quite strict, lengthy and extensive process. The site for the proposed landfill is located on approximately 667 acres adjacent the County’s Solid Waste Facility with an entrance on Old Cedar Falls Road (see maps below).

In April 2013, the County received a Special Use Permit (SUP) from the Randolph County Planning Board. The SUP is a zoning tool which allows a specific land use based on a detailed application and subsequent conditions (see below). The following month, the Randolph County Board of Commissioners approved a resolution authorizing the County to submit a permit application for the proposed landfill to NCDENR. After an extensive Request for Proposals (RFP) process, in December 2013, the County selected Waste Management of the Carolinas, Inc. as a partner for the permitting, construction and operation of the proposed Landfill and associated Franchise Agreement.

Randolph County Closed Landfill

posted 6/19/2014 

Randolph County operated an unlined MSW landfill from 1973 to 1985. The County operated a second, unlined landfill for MSW, construction and demolition (C&D) debris, and land clearing and inert debris (LCID) from 1985 to December 31, 1997. A transfer station was built before final landfill closure in 1997, and remains in operation. Monitoring wells for the second unlined MSW facility have been sampled since 1987. Since this facility operated past October 9, 1993, the landfill is subject to Title 15A NCAC 13B.1630-37 of the NC Solid Waste Management Rules. Due to low-level detections of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in groundwater samples at concentrations above applicable standards, the facility has been in the Assessment Monitoring Program since 1996. As a result of this monitoring two studies of this landfill have been conducted: A Nature and Extent (NES) Study and an Assessment of Corrective Action (ACM). Both of these studies are available in the links below.
