The Tunnel Hill Reclamation Landfill (THR) is located in New Lexington, Ohio, approximately 60 miles southeast of Columbus. THR is a Subtitle D Landfill, in full compliance with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency regulations. THR is also permitted to receive waste from CERCLA (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act) sites based on an approval received from the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The landfill is located on over 2,200 acres, and has over 150 million tons of permittable capacity. THR is currently permitted to accept up to 8,000 tons per day.

One of THR’s greatest assets is the fact that it is directly rail-served. The Ohio Central Railroad delivers railcars directly onto THR’s 6,000 foot long rail spur. Once on THR’s track, the THR locomotive moves loaded railcars into the rail unloading building. In 15 minutes or less, up to 100 tons of waste is unloaded from each railcar. THR has one of only two enclosed rail unloading buildings within the State of Ohio, and has the only certified state of the art rail scale at an Ohio landfill.

Since the Ohio Central Railroad is serviced by the CSX and Norfolk Southern railroads, there are very few locations that cannot be serviced by THR.

For THR’s local customers, trucks are quickly processed over its truck scales. Most trucks are unloaded and leave the landfill within 15 minutes of arrival.
