What We Do

Our Commitment

Niagara Falls Landfill is committed to being a good neighbor and operating with environmental practices and policies that are good for our customers, local businesses and residents. Our team of environmental managers, engineers and scientists ensures the long-term management of the Landfill.


Niagara Falls Landfill is operated in a manner designed to protect public health and the environment. We regularly monitor and report our activities to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), and we strive to meet or exceed all state and federal regulations. All waste is disposed of within the boundary of a constructed landfill area that has been engineered to protect the environment and meets all federal, state and local regulations. There are many environmental protection systems at Niagara Falls Landfill.

Some waste naturally decomposes and produces gas. A landfill gas management system routes collected gas to an on-site flare where it is safely destroyed.

The Niagara Falls Landfill team takes multiple steps to protect the environment. All waste is screened to ensure unacceptable waste is not accepted, and our standard operating procedures are designed to exceed DEC standards.

Niagara Falls Landfill monitors groundwater safety with 200 individual groundwater monitoring wells and 1 surface water monitoring point. Each of these is tested routinely.


We accept construction and demolition and non-hazardous industrial-type solid wastes from Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming Counties in New York, neighboring states and Canada.

Collection process

Waste is carefully compacted and covered daily to control wind-blown debris and potential odors, and create a stable engineered hill.
