Talking Trash!

A visit to the Brevard Landfill

Hosted by Julie Mallis - Turner

How to find us
We will meet at the entrance of the Operations Building for the tour.
2250 Adamson Rd, Cocoa, FL 32926
Details
We will be touring the landfill on a bus furnished by county, the tour lasts an hour. We will learn more about what happens to our trash after it leaves curbside, what is acceptable for recycle, hazardous household waste, and how they control various pollutants from getting into the environment.

The Central Disposal Facility (CDF) is located on Adamson Road in Cocoa. The property was first used for solid waste disposal in the 1960's. Since then the County has continued to make improvements operationally and environmentally.

For example, the 192-acre permitted landfill area is lined by a clay slurry wall, groundwater monitoring wells were installed and a methane gas collection and flare system is in place. The site originally consisted of 285 acres and now totals 957 acres.

Portions of the landfill have gone through closure procedures by capping it with a liner, two feet of cover dirt and sod. It is estimated the Landfill will have enough capacity to handle the disposal needs for Brevard County until 2018.

In addition to the landfill area itself, there are many other areas within the landfill which emphasize waste reduction and environmental protection

Stay Up to Date on The Indian River Lagoon Tax Money

Check the web site below to find out how and where the Lagoon tax money is being spent.  The Citizens Oversight Committee that monitors this money meets every 3rd Friday on the 3rd floor of the County Government Building in Viera.

Please share this information with your friends, neighbors and HOA's.  It took time for the Lagoon to get into the shape it's in now, and it will take time to reverse the damage.  The public needs to understand this.
