The life of Minot’s bulging landfill has been extended by several decades thanks to a land purchase.
The city bought 320 acres of land to allow the landfill to continue operation for another 60 years.
City officials say it will still be another five years or so before they begin actually using the new space.
Minot’s landfill is a regional facility that brings in more than half of its 80-thousand tons of annual waste from outside the city.
The city paid four million dollars for the 320 acres of landfill expansion space.
