We started LANDLOCK® to work with organizations who share our passion for reducing waste and who want to make a positive impact in communities near and far. There are a lot of roads that need to be built and LANDLOCK® is definitely in it for the long haul. We would welcome the opportunity to chat with you, so we can decide together, if we are the right fit.

Dust Control Without Sacrificing the Environment
Most tend to forget about their waste as soon as it leaves their property, which makes sense - out of sight, out of mind. The denial of scientific evidence at the highest levels of government about the state of the planet and our impact on it can have the dangerous effect of lulling us into a false sense of security. Not only that, but trash and global warming are generally not two things that most people would consider as having any sort of connection. However, in many parts of the country, a very real and strong connection can be made every day at your local landfill. Due to strict state and local air quality regulations, landfills are required to control the dust that kicks up from the haul roads that lead from the main entrance to the dumping point, often a half mile or more in length. Based on our work experience across the industry, we know that the vast majority of landfills rely on spraying water as their primary dust suppressant tool. By keeping the haul roads damp, landfill operators can reduce their dust emissions dramatically. However this method of Dust Control is a major cost - both to the operation’s bottom line and in many cases to the environment.
