A New Generation of Landfill Management
The Dry Creek Landfill of today is a regional facility open to commercial accounts of all types. Whatever the challenge, whatever the product, we’re happy to work with you and your team to find a feasible solution. Every day, trucks from throughout southern Oregon and northern California make their way to this state-of-the-art site. Here, minimizing environmental impact is the priority that guides everything we do. Dry Creek is a sub-title D compliant facility with an engineering design that exceeds U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards and a projected operational life exceeding 100 years.
