Environmental Logistics to expand Apex Landfill, raise tonnage limits

Environmental Logistics Services, Inc. (ELS) has received their final permit approvals from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the expansion of their Apex Landfill located in eastern Ohio. The expansion will increase the vertical capacity of the landfill while also extending the site life of the solid waste management facility for several years. Additional daily tonnage limits will be increased to 7,500 tons per day from a current 5,250 tons per day while volumes of construction and demolition waste delivered to the site will not count towards daily permit limits.

The management team has pursued an aggressive strategy of vertical integration using several transfer stations acquired in the New Jersey and New York Metropolitan market to feed their landfill in Ohio.

ELS is currently engineering and will shortly submit plans to build a green energy power plant at the site that will use methane gas from the landfill to create renewable power for 16,500 homes locally.
