But county officials want the Riga landfill to last another 25 years, so they’ve applied to the Department of Environmental Conservation for permission to add 118 acres to the current 95-acre landfill. County officials say they expect the approval process to take about three years. The expansion wouldn’t mean the landfill would accept more trash. Instead, officials need the extra space to keep handling the current amount of trash, since the landfill is nearly full. Officials say the landfill is a reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally sound way to meet the disposal needs of the county and the City of Rochester. But the county’s desire to keep the landfill running has implications beyond the costs and logistics of having a place to put residents’ garbage. It is also an environmental matter that touches on complex issues like waste reduction, reuse, and recycling. And landfills also play a role in climate change.
