As proposed, the landfill facility would have an operational life of about 30 years, segmented into six phases that would provide approximately five years of service each. At complete build-out, the facility would cover a total area of approximately 16 acres with a total disposal capacity of approximately 602,102 cubic yards.

The waste materials permitted for disposal at the proposed C&D Landfill include land clearing and inert debris and construction and demolition debris resulting solely from construction, remodeling, repair or the demolition of pavement, buildings or other structures. Hazardous wastes or other banned wastes such as municipal or industrial solid wastes, liquid waste, medical waste, radioactive waste, PCB wastes, yard trash, white goods, septage, sludge, and special wastes as defined in state law are not approved for disposal.

Prior to disposal, waste materials would be segregated for recovery at a treatment and processing facility located on the property that was previously permitted for construction in February 2013.

The proposed landfill would accept construction and demolition waste from Jones, Craven, Carteret, Onslow, Duplin and Lenoir counties.
