Miramar Landfill (2011)


CPI Report


San Diego residents and businesses send more than a million tons of waste a year to Miramar Landfill for disposal or recycling. Far more than a “dump,” Miramar Landfill is a complicated structure precisely engineered to maximize space and minimize toxic liquid and gas emissions. The only public landfill in San Diego, it is a valuable asset to the City – producing energy and revenue, providing community services and promoting environmental preservation and recycling.
