The Riverside County Waste Management Department minimizes costs for landfill cover by researching, designing and implementing the most long-lasting and cost-effective cover systems available. To determine the maximum efficiency of large tarps, the county mapped tarp sequence deployment strategies specific for each landfill based on the landfill configuration. The use of large tarps was then compared to earthen cover placement, and potential savings were calculated for both size and number of tarps. Based on its data, the department created its own landfill-specific tarps, including appropriate fabric strength and reinforcement to increase their life. Savings are estimated to be $1.5 million annually by using eight large tarps rather one large tarp in conjunction with earth material. Research also showed that during a year-long test using just one large tarp, the fabric tore repeatedly in certain areas. Over the permitted life of two landfills, the county anticipates savings of nearly $47 million.
