The landfill at Crestline, Nevada.

The Crestline Landfill, located in Lincoln County near Panaca, is also privately-owned and positioned to receive rail-hauled waste. Crestline is currently operating as a Class II landfill serving the very modest disposal needs of Lincoln County, yet the facility has obtained a Class I permit (660 acre disposal area) to receive a large volume of solid waste per day once lined disposal cells are constructed and financial assurance for closure is demonstrated. In 2004 the Crestline Landfill was purchased by NORCAL Waste Systems, Inc., a solid waste management company with operations in California. It remains to be seen when, or whether, NORCAL will obtain contracts for waste importation and disposal that would justify the landfill's expansion to a Class I facility (Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, 2007 Solid Waste Management Plan, http://ndep.nv.gov/BWM/swmp/swp05.htm)
