What We Do

Our Commitment

Republic Services is committed to being a good neighbor in the communities we serve. Broadhurst Landfill is committed to operating with environmental practices and policies that are good for our customers, local businesses and residents. Our local team of environmental managers, engineers and scientists ensure that the long-term management of the landfill materials are regenerative to the planet.


Broadhurst Landfill has a highly engineered containment system that responsibly processes local waste streams. The landfill leverages the power of science and advanced technologies to protect the air, land and water upon which society depends.

Republic Services currently maintains 73 landfill gas-to-energy projects nationwide. Broadhurst is currently enhancing its methane extraction infrastructure to prepare for future green energy partners. In the future, Broadhurst Landfill anticipates being able to work with an energy partner to provide more than 275 million BTUs annually, for the duration of the landfill’s operating life.

This facility and the environmental engineers and scientists who manage it, personify Republic’s commitment to operational excellence in landfill management. It’s a highly engineered system that leverages the power of science and advanced technologies to protect and help regenerate the local ecosystem.

Broadhurst is home to more than 600 acres of managed Plantation Pines, and contains more than 115,000 plantings of natural hardwoods species.

Broadhurst has dedicated 259 acres to a wetland conservation easement, including sections of Little Penholoway Creek. These areas encompass the entire western portion of the facility boundary and are recorded with the Wayne County Superior Court.

Broadhurst operates a sophisticated landfill gas system, which extracts landfill gas — a natural byproduct of decomposing waste — and routes the captured gas to a flare system for safe destruction. The landfill gas system collects and safely destroys more than 270-million cubic feet of methane annually.


We service several daily collection routes throughout southeastern Georgia.

Collection process

Transfer stations aggregate waste collection by multiple collection agencies in a single place. By combining waste into one transfer truck, we have less vehicles on the road and reduce emissions.

Transfer process

Waste is carefully compacted and covered daily to limit wind-blown debris and odors, and create a stable engineered hill.

Landfill process

While recycling is handled at other Republic state-of-the-art recycling facilities, Broadhurst is committed and dedicated to sustainable practices through regeneration and conservation.
