The Lanchester Landfill has two “Piggyback Landfills” – landfill and liner systems over older landfill units. The Lanchester Landfill has two mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) berms that are designed to allow more waste to be disposed of on top of older landfill units. Currently constructed one MSE berm is 69 feet high while the other has been in place over ten years and is over 3,000 feet long.The Lanchester Landfill is a certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council as Conservation Education Site.
