West Mound Capping Resumes

West Mound Capping Begins

After East Mound capping completed in 2011, West Mound was the last remaining landfill section to be capped. At 440 acres, West Mound is the site’s largest, with the West Shore Expressway to the east and the Arthur Kill to the west. It’s bordered by the LFG Purification Plant, Leachate Treatment Plant, and SI District 3 Garage and Borough Repair Shop. An earthwork monument is envisioned atop the mound in remembrance of the September 11 recovery effort that occurred in this location.
