Summary Information
(last updated on: 2/3/2020 10:15:26 AM)
The Bend Demolition Landfill site consists of approximately 72 acres located off of SW Simpson Road between Mt Washington Drive and SW Century Drive in Bend. Prior to 1972, the site was used as a pumice mine. The landfill operation began in 1972, using abandoned pumice trenches. The site is owned and was operated by the Deschutes County Department of Public Works only for demolition, construction debris, industrial wood wastes, tires, and similar non-putrescible solid wastes. The site has been closed since 1995 and methane gas generation is currently monitored by the County and DEQ under Solid Waste Permit #215. DEQ plans to enter into a Prospective Purchaser Agreement with Oregon Statue University under which OSU would buy the landfill to expand its OSU-Cascades campus. OSU would remove a portion of the waste in the course of its planned site development.
