Gedney Way Landfill Closure

AKRF has provided environmental consulting services to the City of White Plains to support composting operations and complete landfill closure requirements at the Gedney Way recycling facility. Our work has included engineering and permitting for leaf composting, and an extensive subsurface investigation to provide the necessary data to complete closure of the former landfill. AKRF completed landfill closure activities to fulfill the requirements of a NYSDEC Order on Consent. The closure process included a subsurface investigation to determine the nature and extent of landfill materials and leachate, planning and conceptual design to complete landfill closure, and construction of the landfill cap. Landfill cap installation was completed in 2013, and AKRF is completing performance monitoring to confirm that the site cap is effective in meeting the landfill closure goals.


The installation of a landfill cap in 2013 included vegetative cover, topsoil barrier, barrier protection layer, barrier layer, and gas venting.
