“Hinkle Construction Services, LLC Wins Cell Construction Project for Green Valley Landfill”
Hinkle Construction Services, LLC (HCS) is pleased to announce that it is the winner of a competitive bid for the Green Valley Landfill Cell Construction Unit 2, Phase 5 project in Ashland, Kentucky. HCS was chosen over five companies in a competitive bidding process evaluated on price, schedule and experience.
Green Valley Landfill serves the eastern KY / Ashland market area. Green Valley is one of seven landfills in the state operated by Republic Services. “HCS employees have a long history of working at the Green Valley Landfill facility and with Republic Services personnel,” HCS Director of Marketing and Project Manager Chip Simmons said.
The project will include the construction of a Subtitle-D, municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill cell that covers approximately 5.75 acres. Approximately 200,000 CY of earthwork, blasting and preparing soil liner material through a mechanical screening process are included in the project. HCS will perform mass excavation, blasting, embankment, installation of an under drain system, installation of the leachate collection system, placement of protective cover sand and surface water controls.
The project schedule will run from February-September, 2016, according to Simmons. “Blasting operations will be critical to starting the project off correctly and insuring that the schedule can be met,” Simmons said. “Screening the clay liner soil will also be critical to the schedule. We anticipate 45 days to process the soil, and weather can severely hamper this process,” he explained. “The sooner we can screen and stockpile the clay liner, the better.”
