The Pebbly Beach Landfill is located on 7.7 acres in size with approximately 5.6 acres of landfill area.
Avalon Environmental Services is solely responsible for refuse pickup and solid waste processing for the City of Avalon. The City of Avalon is unique with a population of about 3,500, however, during the tourist season - Memorial Day through Labor Day - it explodes to as many as 10,000 visitors per day.
To further efforts with recycling, a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) was built to increase diversion from disposal in the landfill. The recovered materials are baled and barged back to the mainland to the appropriate recyclers. The remaining trash is compacted in a baler and placed in the landfill. Bale filling is like creating a landfill with "Lego Land" blocks. In order to make the landfill stable they are interlocked with each other. Green waste is recycled through a Windrow composting operation in operation since 2002.
