Seminole Landfill

One of Metro Atlanta's largest and busiest landfills is Dekalb County's Seminole Landfill.  When the county elected to construct a new cell, the designer chose to maximize the site by including a massive reinforced slope, or Mechanically Stabilized Earth Slope.  With a maximum height of 89' and a length of over 3200 linear feet, the structure supports millions of tons of waste, as well as access for landfill trucks and equipment.  This structure was vegetated after construction to prevent erosion of the geosynthetic face wrap.  The aerial photo shows most of the structure along the left side of the photograph.  It can be seen flying into and out of Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport on the east side.


Emergency Response

We never know when a natural or man-made emergency will occur. Vertical Earth can mobilize quickly to provide life-safety solutions, as well as stabilize and prevent loss of property or improvements. Landslides, rock slides, slope failures, sink holes, foundation failures, retaining wall failures, erosion, pipe and culvert failures, tornado and hurricane damage, and many other catastrophic events require that action be taken quickly to prevent further loss, as well as to allow life to return to normal as quickly as possible. Municipalities, school districts, state governments, large corporations, utility providers, multi-family developers, and others have relied on Vertical Earth's quick response time coupled with our Experience and Flexibility to provide solutions. With just a phone call, a manager with the authority to make decisions will be on your site, with equipment and manpower, within a matter of hours.
