The landfill leachate recirculation line extension project at the Butler County Landfill took a step forward Tuesday when the Butler County Commissioners approved a change order for the project.

The recirculation lines help break down the trash and extract methane gas from the landfill.

When the landfill expands 150 feet horizontally and/or 20 feet vertically, the lines must be extended. The lines were last extended about seven years ago.
