Circle C Landfill
Circle C Landfill Termination of Post-Closure Permit
Circle C Landfill (Circle C) is a closed 8-acre landfill that is located on a group of parcels totaling approximately 35 acres in La Center, Washington. Circle C is a privately owned, unlined Limited Purpose landfill that operated from 1977-1990. To end post-closure care, Washington State Administrative Code 173-304 states an owner/operator & professional engineer need to demonstrate that a landfill is stable by showing there is little or no settlement, gas production or leachate generation.
In November 2015, Circle C representatives formally requested to terminate post-closure permitting requirements. In response to a request from Circle C Corporation to terminate the post-closure permit at Circle C Landfill, CCPH staff developed draft criteria to formalize the termination of post-closure process. Following a public comment period and presentation to Clark County’s Board of Health on April 26, 2017, CCPH is reviewing the details of the proposed criteria table with the applicant. CCPH staff are currently working with Washington State Department of Ecology staff and Circle C representatives to formally finalize the criteria parameters.
The draft criteria table and supporting documents are listed below.
