Frey Farm Landfill

Thanks to LCSWMA’s Integrated System, only around 5% of Lancaster County’s waste is sent to the landfill each year. Material delivered to the Frey Farm Landfill consists mostly of inorganic material, like waste-to-energy ash and construction/demolition debris, which produces less gas, odor and litter than a typical landfill.

Key things to know about the Frey Farm Landfill:

  • The site is subject to strict regulations and holds the best environmental record of any municipal landfill in Pennsylvania.
  • It’s home to three green projects, including:
    • Landfill Gas-to-Energy, where we combust landfill gas to create electricity.
    • Wind Energy, two wind turbines create enough electricity for neighboring Turkey Hill Dairy manufacturing plant to make 5-6 million gallons of ice cream annually.
    • Metals Recovery Facility, a partnership with Blue Phoenix to capture small ferrous and non-ferrous metals for recycling.
