Weekly Landfill Report


Department: Helena West Helena Regional Landfill

Date: July 27, 2009

Prepared By: Bob Gaston


Specific Weekly Activities:


Employees Tommy, Carl, and Terry come in at 6:30am to start equipment and do daily maintenance; Donna comes in at 7:00am and turns on computer.


Once Tommy 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. Donna 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 we start 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 Donna begins adding tickets and balancing with the computer and printing reports.


Donna is usually finished by 4:00pm. After last truck leaves the operators finish compacting and covering. This normally takes about one and half hours. Each day someone checks the leachate 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.

1.     Work on drainage.

2.     Build clean-out pad.
