Where is the most active area within the landfill (as of April 2019)?

The complete footprint of the landfill is based on an engineering design with the goal of accepting waste. Accepting waste includes horizontal and vertical scooping of waste. The area on top of the south portion of landfill is currently where waste is being actively placed. Within 6-9 months the southern portion will be filled to the permitted height and grades. Operations will then work back to the north, and west, and finally east. The goal is to keep the active area farthest from the neighbors to the south. The result will be a more aesthetically pleasing view that is covered and vegetated.
