Lincoln County to expand Irma landfill

IRMA, Wis (WSAU) The Lincoln County landfill in Irma will be full by 2014. The county is planning to expand the site now.

It will cost $11.5-million to build the next phase of the landfill, which will hold another 1.2-million yards of solid waste.

The land needs to have a clay lining to keep debris from contaminating the ground-water. That clay is being trucked onto the site right now. The expanded landfill will be ready in early 2014. The DNR will do a final inspection of the site before any garbage can be dumped there.
