The following landfills: 29th Street, Broadway North, Cactus, Columbus, Dragoon, State Pit, and Walnut have had City involvement in the past but today are not owned by the City. Since these properties are currently owned by private interests, the City is not responsible for maintenance or landfill gas monitoring of them at the sites.

Additional Info
Where necessary, these landfills are routinely monitored for landfill gas by the private owner with results reported to the Tucson Fire Department as required under the City Landfill Ordinance #10037 adopted by the Mayor and Council on September 13, 2004.
