Proposed Regional Landfill

Proposed Regional Landfill Information Line: 336-318-6606

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.
