Re: City of NAME Municipal Solid Waste Facility Inspection of Month dd, 19nn
Dear Sir or Madam:
Thank you for assisting ____ and me with the inspection of the Council dump on [date]. A copy of the inspection checklist and photos is enclosed.
This year the facility rated a [23%] compliance with standards for safe and healthy solid waste management at Class III landfills in Alaska (## out of 126 possible points). Ratings below 80% are generally regarded as unsatisfactory. (Had the record keeping requirements been met, the facility would rate ##% compliance.) The current dump is not designed and operated as a sanitary landfill. Nevertheless, there are immediately feasible improvements in operations that might help.
We talked about several remedies the Council can initiate for immediate relief as well as for longer-term relief [such as a new landfill, tentatively planned for 3.5 miles away, at_____]. In general, the following steps would provide some improvement in the environmental health situation
Please call (tel. #) or write if you have questions about the inspection. Let me or _____ (telephone #) know what further technical assistance we can offer, including working with you and the Council on the community’s solid waste management program.
