Here are the steps you can take to prepare your load of asbestos-containing building materials for delivery to Short Mountain Landfill.

2. Have any suspect materials tests by an analytical lab.
3. Fill out an LRAPA ASN-4 Asbestos Waste Shipment form or DEQ ASN 4 Waste Shipment Report form.

Leachate Management

Leachate Management

Leachate (liquid that percolates down through the waste mass) is captured, pumped and transported 5.5 miles to Glenwood Transfer Station. At that point, leachate is discharged into the sanitary sewer system where it goes to the City of Eugene's Wastewater Treatment facility.

Methane Recovery

Methane Capture
 Short Mountain Landfill employs aggressive methane capture and has a long-term partnership with Emerald People's Utility District to capture landfill gas to power turbine engines that create electricity that powers EPUD homes.

In 2018, approximately 4,663 metric tons of methane was captured, enough to power 1,200 homes for a year.

Wetland Mitigation

Quamash Prairie

Lane County Waste Management manages 158 acres of wetland mitigation at the 265-acre Quamash Prairie site located 5.5 miles south of the Eugene/Springfield metro area, adjacent to Short Mountain Landfill.

Quamash Prairie parcel was acquired in 2002 for mitigation. The site is in close proximity to 100 acres of mature Oregon ash (Fraxinus latifolia) & Oregon white oak (Quercus garryana) bottomland forest that encompasses the Camas Swale.

The Quamash Prairie wetland mitigation site has been developed as an outdoor classroom, and provides education and service learning opportunities to students. The proximity of this outdoor classroom to the Short Mountain Landfill also allows students to learn about materials management and how waste is managed locally.
