13 South Wake Landfill  Master Plan divided into Districts  Districts have pre-closure opportunities (closure refers to when the SWLF closes). Opportunities include recreation, energy applications, County development and/or sale for private development.  Districts with limited or no pre-closure opportunities have post-closure concepts listed such as recreation or energy applications.  In most cases, there are prerequisites to these opportunities such as access roads or old landfill mining.

14 South Wake Landfill  Master Plan has already provided guidance for a couple of projects:  Sale of some excess borrow property to Holly Springs for various recreational uses, including a Coastal Plain League baseball team  Numerous inquiries regarding available land – able to provide potential developer with good information  Redevelopment of current CC, MMRF and HHW sites – design this FY with construction in 2015/16
