We are consistently striving to make improvements at the Bethlehem Landfill. This means we don’t just meet the minimum requirements and regulations that govern our industry – we exceed them. It also means working to be a good neighbor.
Bethlehem Landfill’s strong compliance, operational and safety record in conjunction with its state-of-the-art practices are actually helping to improve area ground water conditions, conditions that were deteriorated under former landfill owners. This facility also produces clean, safe renewable energy that powers up to 1,900 homes each year.
Compliance checks are performed two times per month by the Lower Saucon Township Host Municipal Inspector and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
LAYERS OF PROTECTION:
The landfill uses a double-layer, composite liner system.
The current owners have managed Bethlehem Landfill since 1999. This site has been a landfill since the 1950s.
Bethlehem Landfill offers a vital, convenient and exclusive service to more than 5,000 township residents and local businesses annually that have sporadic yet important disposal needs.
These drop-off loads are generally small volume from cars, pick ups, vans, U-Hauls and small dump trucks. No other landfill in the Lehigh Valley serves this category of customer.
