The Billings Regional Landfill is the largest landfill in Montana. 250 of the 800 acre landfill are permitted to receive waste. The landfill receives over 350,000 tons of garbage per year from five counties:

  • Carbon
  • Musselshell
  • Stillwater
  • Treasure
  • Yellowstone


If the landfill continues to receive the same amount waste, it will be full in approximately 50 years. This can be greatly expanded if recyclables are diverted from the landfill.


The city is currently using a portion of the Landfill which is lined with on-site clay soils and a synthetic liner to help prevent contaminates from reaching, and potentially polluting, groundwater.


The waste pile is managed following a process called the Alternate Daily Cover (ADC). Under this protocol the waste pile is covered with posi-shell. This product helps prevent litter problems, odors and scavenging animals, it also aids the expected lifespan of the facility and provides fire-control. Wind screens are positioned around the pile to help catch any blowing debris. Empty plastic bags are the biggest nuisance at the landfill as they are easily caught by the wind and transported off site. Tying a knot in an empty bag before throwing it away will prevent it from becoming airborne. Better yet - recycle! 

Waste Types in the Landfill
Municipal Waste* (commercial and residential)60%
Non-hazardous waste (refinery waste, sewage sludge, agricultural waste)15%
Inert Waste (construction/demolition debris, non-contaminated soil, tires)25%

*Of the municipal waste received, about 40% is some sort of paper product, 15% is metals, glass and plastic, the remaining 45% is food waste, wood products and asphalt products etc.
