Sustainable Operations

Noise, erosion, and dust control

At PVT, sustainability includes mitigation of difficult issues that affect our operations. For example, to mitigate noise our landfill activities are located at the rear of the facility. To reduce truck noise, speed limits are enforced and engine braking is prohibited, and the last call for trucks to enter the facility is 3 p.m. There are no nighttime or weekend operations.

An abundance of trees and ground cover beautify PVT and help to prevent erosion. Four water trucks patrol the facility, dampening roads and knocking down dust from landfill operations. PVT also employs a wheel wash. It cleans truck wheels before vehicles leave PVT so dirt won’t be carried to roads outside the facility.
