Springfield Landfill Set to Expand

Springfield City Council has approved an extension of the city landfill.

Council voted to allow the landfill to use up to 13 million dollars in bonds to expand the landfill and improve infrastructure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the landfill.

Erick Roberts, Assistant Director of Environmental Services says the improvements will turn the gases into power for the city.
