WEEKLY Department Head Meeting

Department: Helena West Helena Regional Landfill
Date: Feb 9, 2009
Prepared By: Bob Gaston

Specific Weekly Activities:
Employees Tommy and Larry come in at 6:30am to start equipment
and do daily maintenance; Donna comes in at 7:00am and turns on

Terry arrives at 8:00am and checks his equipment and starts
hauling dirt.

Once Larry has the working face and road ready he lets Donna
start sending trucks down. Donna weighs the trucks and sends
the trucks to the cell. Once the truck has emptied the driver
returns and is weighed. Mary prints a ticket and the driver
comes in and signs the ticket, the driver receives a copy. Each
truck goes through this process each time. Donna also does
random inspections on a daily basis. As the waste is placed in
the cell the process of compacting begins. We start lunches at
10:00 am and go thru 12:00. After lunch Terry begins placing
dirt around the working face so we can cover. Trucks are
allowed to enter landfill until 3:30pm. After the last truck is
weighed out Mary begins adding tickets and balancing with the
computer and printing reports.

Donna is usually finished by 4:00pm. After the last truck
leaves the process of finishing compacting and covering begin.
This normally takes about one and half hours. Each day someone
checks the leechate pumps and tanks. We have part time help to
take care of litter, grass, office, scales, and other task. We
maintain a daily maintenance log on all equipment and make sure
hourly maintenance is maintained.

We work during all weather conditions and wet weather adds to
the over time. Most weather damage repair is done on Sat.
