Republic Services Opens New Landfill And Transfer Station

HARLINGEN, Texas, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading environmental services company Republic Services, Inc. (NYSE:RSG) today dedicated a state-of-the-art landfill and transfer station in Texas to meet the Rio Grande Valley's waste needs for the next 100 years. The new La Gloria landfill is a highly-engineered facility and was designed as a safe, environmentally sound system for waste disposal.


The 2037-acre landfill replaces Republic's Rio Grande Valley Landfill in Donna, Texas, that was filled to capacity.

La Gloria LandfillWith an estimated life of more than 100 years, La Gloria, in Edinburg, Texas, will serve the entire Rio Grande Valley. Both the landfill and transfer station will accept material from residents, contractors, third-party waste haulers, as well as from Republic's local operations. Permitted material includes municipal solid waste, liquids, green waste and special waste.

"Landfills are an essential component of a comprehensive waste solution," said Bob Boucher, executive vice president, operations. "We were able to work with the community, our neighbors and municipal leaders to provide safe disposal options that will serve the region's waste needs for the next century."

The site was under construction for one year and was built with integrated systems, technologies and processes that help ensure environmental protection. It is equipped with liners made of clay and plastic, a leachate collection and management system, a storm water drainage system and a ground water monitoring system.

The landfill will be operated to comply with all local, state and federal regulations and to protect the environment.

La Feria Transfer StationThe La Feria transfer station, located in La Feria, Texas, is a 14,000 square foot facility that also will serve the Rio Grande Valley.

Transfer stations are conveniently-located sites that receive solid waste, consolidate loads and optimize hauling to disposal sites. Efficiency in the number and capacity of loads traveling to a landfill means controlled costs and less air pollution because fewer trucks are required to travel those distances.
