[GreenYes] Re: C&D as landfill cover

The use of wallboard for daily cover in a humid environment would be a terrible mistake in my judgment, due to the formation of hydrogen sulfide gas in an anaerobic environment that has high moisture and organic material.

Just last week, Bill Turley of the Construction Materials Recycling Association spoke to the Wisconsin Governor's Blue Ribbon Task Force on Waste Materials and Recovery and told of the problems that drywall in landfills was causing for H2S formation.

Subject: [GreenYes] C&D as landfill cover

Indiana environmental officials have been asked in recent weeks to allow processed C&D waste (primarily wallboard) as alternative landfill cover.
