Pickles Butte Sanitary Landfill is currently expanding its perimeter fencing in preparation to extend the landfill’s footprint south of Perch Rd as part of phase three of its expansion plan. The perimeter fence will be expanded on the north and west side of the current landfill fence (see map above). The added space will be used to dig a new cell for future waste burial and provide additional dirt for crews to cover the waste each day.
The expansion and new fence line will close off public access to some of the easternmost trails at Jubilee Park. Notices have been posted at both Jubilee Park and the landfill to inform residents of the upcoming changes.
