Landfill operations are located at Highlands County Solid Waste Management Center at 12700 Arbuckle Creek Road.  The landfill is located in a rural setting surrounded by hayfields and pasture land with grazing beef cattle.  This state-of-the-art facility is on a 98-acre site surrounded by a treed buffer around it’s perimeter that minimizes the visual impact of the operations.  The site includes a Class I landfill and gas recovery facility, an Agricultural Plastic Disposal Unit, a Construction and Demolition Debris Disposal facility, as well as areas for yard waste, tires, metal and other items that are recycled or used on-site. 

The Class I landfill currently consists of 35 acres containing a double synthetic lined system and has a total disposal area of 147 acres.   Residents and businesses can help extend the life of the facility by increasing their recycling participation. 

The facility has leachate collection and on-site leachate treatment plus methane gas collection.  The methane gas is burned in a flare to minimize the greenhouse gas affects or can be diverted to the on-site Highlands County asphalt plant where it is can be used as a fuel source in the production of asphalt.

A staff of approximately 20 operates the facility six (6) days a week with approximately 100,000 tons of waste disposed of annually.

The landfill is open from 7:30 aM to 5:00 pM
