Consistent with the Department of Public Service mission statement, the landfill is evaluating the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (a.k.a drones) to assist in  evaluating operations.  This technology has the potential to provide real time information which can help heavy equipment operators and management see opportunities for continuous improvement, resulting in more effective and efficient landfill operations.
