Project Focus: Bass Hill Landfill in Susanville, CA
“Off-site migration of wind-blown litter at Bass Hill Landfill was a tremendous problem. To mitigate the problem and be good neighbors to the down-wind wildlife refuge, a 30 foot high litter fence was erected along the landfill property boundary. Following a competitive bid process, Judge Netting was awarded the litter fence installation project. The Lassen Regional Solid Waste Management Authority couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of the product and the professional installation process. Judge Netting also provided excellent follow-up services when portions of the netting were damaged following near-hurricane force winds in 2013. We are pleased to recommend Judge Netting for litter fence installation at municipal landfill sites.”
-Tom Valentino, General Manager of Bass Hill Landfill
One of the biggest challenges facing landfill management and development is the containment and retention of litter. Local winds can wreak havoc by spreading trash to adjacent properties and creating stressful bureaucratic obstacles for landfill managers. This is especially true in areas with high wind weather patterns, where fast and frequent winds make trash containment nearly impossible without some kind of barrier.
Luckily, industrial netting structures, such as the one surrounding the Bass Hill Landfill, are a highly effective and cost-efficient way to solve this problem. When the Lassen County Regional Waste Management reached out to Judge Netting about the Bass Hill Landfill, they were seeking a permanent solution to prevent trash from blowing into neighboring government property. It was critical to the long-term growth of the site that they have a barrier that would not only retain litter, but also stand up to intense local wind conditions. Judge Netting worked closely with management to construct a cost-effective 30-foot netting structure that the client is pleased with to this day.
