Solid Waste Solutions for a Better Community
Our commitment to clean and safe waste management extends to the Quad Cities Landfill, in Milan, IL which we own and operate.
As the Quad Cities' leading waste management company, Millennium Waste equips the landfill with environmental monitoring systems, gas and leachate management systems, and a storm water pollution prevention plan to ensure compliance with all state and federal regulations.

Remember it's not waste until you waste it!
Unlike a garbage dump, the EPA defines, "Modern landfills are well-engineered and managed facilities for the disposal of solid waste. Landfills are located, designed, operated and monitored to ensure compliance with federal regulations. They are also designed to protect the environment from contaminants, which may be present in the waste stream.
Unlike the old garbage dumps, the EPA states, “Landfills cannot be built in environmentally-sensitive areas, and they are placed using on-site environmental monitoring systems. These monitoring systems check for any sign of groundwater contamination and for landfill gas, as well as provide additional safeguards.
Today's landfills must meet stringent design, operation and closure requirements established under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)."
What is RCRA?
"The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, was enacted by Congress in 1976. RCRA’s primary goals are to protect human health and the environment from the potential hazards of waste disposal, to conserve energy and natural resources, to reduce the amount of waste generated, and to ensure that wastes are managed in an environmentally sound manner."
