Information regarding the City’s proposed sludge landfill expansion project.

Sludge News

In 2023, the City of Gardner will construct a 4.3 acre expansion to the existing West Street sludge landfill, which receives biosolids, a nutrient rich biproduct of the city's wastewater treatment process. While treated organic biosolids should not pose a threat to human or environmental health, safe and effective management prevents inadvertent industrial compounds from infiltrating our soils, water and air.  The City of Gardner has explored numerous alternatives for managing biosolids and determined that landfill expansion best balances our community's infrastructural, environmental, and economic priorities.
