Small landfill and rural community solid waste resources


The CDPHE Solid Waste and Materials Management Program is inviting comments on the draft Small Landfill Engineering Design and Operation Plan (EDOP) Template, which we have prepared to assist small landfills. By reducing the scope of EDOP components that need to be prepared by the landfills at their own cost, this should save small sites money. Also attached is a table, named EDOP component prep scheme, showing which documents CDPHE agreed to prepare and which documents (primarily engineering design documents and financial assurance) that would still need to be prepared by a facility's consultant.
We invite your feedback on this draft small landfill EDOP template for the next 60 days, through March 31, 2019.  Comments or questions may be submitted via email to Jerry Henderson at
