What We Do

Our Commitment

Republic Services is committed to being a good neighbor in the communities we serve. Tower Landfill is committed to operating with environmental practices and policies that are good for our customers, local businesses and residents.


Tower Landfill is operated in a manner designed to protect public health and the environment. We regularly monitor and report our activities to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) and the Tri-County Health Department (TCHD), and we strive to meet or exceed all state and federal regulations. All waste is disposed of within the boundary of a constructed landfill area that has been engineered to protect the environment and meets all federal, state and local regulations. There are many environmental protection systems at Tower Landfill.

The Tower Landfill team takes multiple steps to protect the environment. All waste is screened to ensure unacceptable waste is not accepted, and our standard operating procedures are designed to exceed the CDEHP standards. More than 302 acres of the Tower Landfill property is dedicated to non-landfill operations.

Tower Landfill gas is collected through a system of 87 extraction wells. In addition, the Landfill’s exterior gas probes are also regularly monitored to ensure the landfill gas system is operating properly.

Protection of all water sources is a priority at Tower Landfill. The Landfill is designed with a highly engineered liner system designed to contain any liquids that percolate through the solid waste. These liquids are managed on-site. Surface water at the site is controlled through a series of diversion berms and drainage ditches to preserve its quality. In addition, Tower Landfill assesses groundwater with 11 individual groundwater monitoring wells. Each well is routinely tested to verify the groundwater’s safety.

Our Priority

Our local team of environmental managers, engineers and scientists ensures that the long-term management of the landfill materials is regenerative to the planet.
