Containment Design

Our double-liner system protects the environment by ensuring that all waste and wastewater (leachate) is contained and isolated from soil and groundwater. Hillsboro Landfill uses synthetic membrane and clay liners built to strict engineering standards. All construction is monitored and documented by independent thirdparty engineering firms and subjected to review and approval by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).

Groundwater Monitoring

Groundwater is monitored by a total of 26 wells, which monitor both upgradient and downgradient groundwater surrounding the landfill. Monitoring results are submitted to DEQ.

Landfill Gas Management

Hillsboro Landfill has an active gas collection system, which pulls landfill gas from a series of vertical and horizontal collectors from within the landfill. The gas system collects approximately 400 cubic feet per minute of landfill gas that is managed by a blower and flare system at the site.

Leachate Collection & Treatment

All waste cells have a leachate collection and removal system, which includes an automated pumping system that maintains sump levels below regulatory standards. Leachate is collected and pumped through a pipeline for treatment to the Rock Creek Treatment Plant owned by Clean Water Services.

Promoting Wetlands and Wildlife

This site includes 120 acres of wetlands and wildlife habitat. It is home to 100 bird species and mammals including the Great Blue Heron. Our wildlife habitat and wetlands have earned prestigious certification from the Wildlife Habitat Council. These wetlands are also important to the community because they act as a relief valve for neighborhood stormwater and for floodwaters from the Tualatin River.

Approval Process

Waste Management has a defined waste screening protocol for each of its Subtitle D non-hazardous waste facilities, which protects both our employees and the environment. For all industrial and special waste streams, the generator or agent must complete a Generator’s Non-Hazardous Waste Profile (available online at wmsolutions.com) for review and approval by our technical staff.

Indemnification

Waste Management provides the highest level of services backed with a written indemnification that protects customers from fines, lawsuits, sanctions or other legal/regulatory actions.

Hillsboro Landfill partners with Jackson Bottom Wetlands to protect wildlife through the development of wetlands and uplands habitats.
