How are Denver and Waste Management involved at the Lowry Landfill?
The federal government deeded the site to the City and County of Denver in 1964 for use as a landfill. Denver operated the Lowry Landfill on the site from 1965 to1980. Waste Management took over operations of the Lowry Landfill in 1980 under contract to Denver. Under a settlement among the hundreds of entities that at one time used Lowry Landfill as an industrial disposal site, Denver and Waste Management together agreed to manage implementation of the selected remedy.
