FREEWAY SANITARY LANDFILL
Superfund Site Profile
The 150-acre Freeway Sanitary Landfill site is located in Burnsville, Minnesota, just southwest of Interstate 35W and the Minnesota River. The landfill contains a wide variety of wastes, including battery casings and aluminum furnace slag. Leachate from the landfill has contaminated groundwater with hazardous chemicals. Landfill gases are also a threat at the site; currently, no landfill gas venting system exists.
