Rapid City public works approves landfill revamp


The Rapid City Public Works Committee Tuesday afternoon moved forward with plans to make it easier for people to use the city's landfill.
The panel agreed to move forward with a revamp of the current landfill's layout.

Solid waste superintendent Karl Merbach said the plan has been in the works for years.

The idea is to make it easier for everyday people to use the dump.

The new layout will provide a one-stop shop for the 40,000 to 45,000 people in normal cars and trucks who use the landfill every year.
"They can drop off their trash, pick up compost, drop off their recycling, whatever they need to do where they don't have to worry about losing tires or fighting with big equipment," Merbach said.
The Public Works Committee voted to give the roughly $4 million contract to J. Scull Construction.

The full Council will vote on the landfill changes on Tuesday.
