McLean County Trash Won't Pile-Up When Landfill Reaches Capacity

Refuse will be sent to Livingston County

The McLean County landfill is nearing capacity.

The 55 acre landfill is operated by Republic Services and will be full sometime early next year.

The company will then transport the trash to Livingston County's landfill near Pontiac.

The Pontiac site has at least 36 years of estimated space left.

Republic Services GM Daniel Winters told us, "There was some discussion out there that this was going to be a financial impact to the community and our customers. It is not. It's just a matter of moving the trash to another landfill."

Next year, the dumping ground will be covered in dirt and grass will be planted.

McLean County’s waste transfer station will continue to operate after the landfill closes.
