Left-over landfill: Peoria to remove 4,000 cubic yards of debris at $250,000 for road project

By Philip Haldiman | YourValley.net

Peoria is spending about $250,000 to remove and dispose of 4,000 cubic yards of landfill debris near 103rd and Olive avenues.

Adina Lund, development and engineering director, said the trash was found beneath the surface along the roadway and under a portion of the roadway.

She said the debris material came from the long closed Glendale Landfill adjacent to the project area. Landfill waste found included a mixture of soil, plastic, rubber, metal, wood, aluminum cans, milk cartons, glass bottles, paper, metal, wood, tires, rubber, metal and landscape debris, according to a geotechnical report.

An investigation as part of a project to improve 103rd Avenue between Northern and Olive avenues found the debris to be non-hazardous material, which Ms. Lund said, allows the city to excavate it and dispose of it in a traditional landfill.
