Carleton Farms Landfill
The landfill sits on 664 acres (2.69 km2) of property and has a solid waste boundary of 388 acres (1.57 km2). It is owned by Republic Services Inc., and is about 30 miles (48 km) west of Detroit since 2002. From 1970s to 2002 the site was operated by Carleton Farms Incorporated as a Liquid industrial waste generator.
As of September, 2005, one million tons of waste is shipped from Toronto to the Carleton Farms Landfill annually after 2002. The site no longer takes Toronto's trash and now accounts for about 10% of Michigan's total waste.
