The LaSalle County Environmental Services and Land Use Department conducts inspections on solid waste issues in the unincorporated areas of the County, under the delegated authority of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. As a delegated county for the IEPA, this Department conducts inspections on both permitted facilities and non-permitted facilities to insure compliance of the Illinois Environmental Protection Act.
Much of the municipal waste that is generated in LaSalle County is delivered and disposed of at LandComp Landfill. LandComp Landfill is located at 2840 East 13th Rd, just west of Ottawa. This landfill was sited and permitted to accept municipal waste in 1998. The projected lifespan of the fill when it was opened was approximately 30 years. The life of a land fill is generally assessed with the term “air space”. Each year assessments are conducted to evaluate the amount of “air space” remaining at the fill. According to the last evaluation conducted by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, Land Comp Landfill will continue to accept waste until the year 2038. This information is published in the Nonhazardous Solid Waste Management and Landfill Capacity in Illinois report.
