PUBLIC NOTICE | Proposed Type IV Amendment to Solid Waste Facility Plan for Queen Creek Landfill

ADEQ has received an application from Maricopa County Waste Resources and Recycling (MCWRR) for a Type IV amendment to the solid waste facility plan for the Queen Creek Landfill located in Queen Creek, Ariz.


The proposed Eagle Park on top of the closed Queen Creek Municipal landfill will be a continuation of an existing Horse Shoe Park owned and operated by the Town of Queen Creek. The park will have two loop trails within the landfill top, a maintenance yard, an environmental showcase center, two Ramada’s at a central area, walkways on the south and east sides, two parking areas, and entrance and egress from Riggs Road and from Horse Shoe Park. The loop trails in the central area and the edges of the parking areas will house numerous low-water-use plants species including saguaro cactus, ocotillo, cholla, yucca, brittle bush, creosote, chuparosa, fairy duster, desert willow, Palo Verde, mesquite, ash, Texas ebony, acacia and other similar native plants. In addition, some large plant species, such as ash and pines, will be housed outside the landfill but along the northern and western boundaries. The ground will be covered with 2 to 3 inches of thick decomposed granite or rock mulch.
