COMIfF.vTS A.',T A con«3i'i<»raMft arount of naint sludge in 55 Ballon metal dnras had been disposed of on tSe site. It appeared that the najority of the paint slu'Jte had been nixed vith soil and had caused one area to be verv odorous and extreaely dan?. Neither the demolition or sanitary landfill should be aecsptlnp any quantity of r>aint or other sludges. It
is understood that a snail anonnt Mr;ht <^et into the landfill •undetected but, it was obvious thit « t^ooJ nortion of the sludge could and should have been tnrnp'1 •'•..-.tv. "mediate steps must be taken to stop all Incarli*1 ^enoqit? of sach naterlala and to Irmfidiatelv renove such materials vhen they sore hcv? are -Junped. (Section 80-6.010 (2) (A) of the "issouri Solid tfastt Rules and Regulations lists the tynes of materials to be accented at a demolition landfill.

T.ouls County West L.V-.C l^-.olition Landfill October 2?, 1977 Acceptance of non-denotion wastes has been observed in the past at the denolltion landfill site.

The corsbinatlon of advising proseectlve «*\nr»ers of vhat vnstes are accepted via the landfill sir>n alon« ^rtth a responsible supervisor who is knovleisable
about what vastes can and cannot he accepted should result in a
great reduction in non-denolition wastes bein? dumped at the demolition
It was observed that the demolition materials vere being dumped at
the top of the MorldLn* face of the landfill and for the nost part
slrTply pushed over the edr;e of the f?.cc. Very little compaction
was beinj: ftcconplished. It was understood that seme bulky wastes
such as larne concrete blocks and tree trunks cannot be compacted
but, the rajority of the other demolition wastes can be spread
and contacted in layers around tvo feet thick on or near a 3 to 1 slope.
If possible, It is recowaended that the demolition vastes be durroed
at the base of ^rorklnr; face. IThether t*”» vaster are dumped at the
top or base of the working face, every effort -:ust be aade to spread
and ccnpact the demolition wastes in”levers not to exceed two (2)
feet as true!: as practical fron the stnnrnoint of the size and shape
of the Tuif.rlalq. If a load is observed containing larjje materials
tb.it coulrf hinder the nroper corranction of other demolition vastes,
it shoul’.’ be dirrped x»h
