Facility details

Graham Road Recycling and Disposal is part of the Waste Management Landfill Group.

Containment design

Our system protects the environment by ensuring that all waste is contained and isolated from soil and groundwater. The site's multi-layer composite liner system is built to strict engineering standards, using a two-foot clay bottom and 60-mile, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) liner. The final cap includes a soil foundation, a 40-mil HDPE liner, drainage and soil layers, and a vegetative cover.

Groundwater monitoring

Groundwater is monitored by 14 monitoring wells (four up-gradient and ten down-gradient). Monitoring results are submitted to the Spokane Regional Health District and the Washington State Department of Ecology.

Leachate collection and treatment

All waste cells have a leachate collection and removal system, which includes an automated pumping system that maintains sump levels below regulatory standards. Leachate is collected and managed in double-lined evaporation ponds.

Waste approval process

Waste Management has a defined waste screening protocol for each of its non-hazardous waste facilities, which protects both our employees and the environment. For all industrial and special waste streams, the generator or agent must complete a Generator's Non-Hazardous Waste Profile (available online at for review by our technical staff.
