In March 2007, A. Servidone and B. Anthony embarked on the Middlesex County Landfill Phase 2 Expansion project in New Jersey. The companies will construct three new cells – known as Cell 7, Cell 8 and Cell 9 – on top of the pre-existing cells. “Our work includes, but is not limited to, sub-grade preparation for 95 acres of land disturbance of which approximately 76 acres will be under liner,” Servidone reports. A liner is a composite of plastic materials used to prevent leachate, produced by the garbage, from infiltrating the ground. The liner system A. Servidone and B. Anthony are using consists of HDPE liner, GCL and geocomposite drain. “The total liner system includes 6.6 million square feet of 60 and 80 milliliter liner,” Servidone says. “It also includes leachate correction and leak detection piping.” The sub-grade preparation includes placement and compaction of approximately 1 million cubic yards of import fill to bring the new cells up to sub-grade, including separation berms and parameter berms, he notes. “Work also includes tying in to existing landfill cells and installing approximately 13,000 lineal feet of trash netting and inclinometers and approximately 8,600 lineal feet of gravel parameter roadways,” Servidone adds. A. Servidone and B. Anthony have partnered with Barbella Construction Services, an environmental remediation company, on the $75 million project. Servidone says it should be completed by December 2009. I
