The K&L Avenue Landfill is a former sanitary landfill in Oshtemo Township, Kalamazoo, Michigan. The site served as a local garbage dump for the Township from the 1960s until 1968, when it became the county sanitary landfill. Approximately five million cubic yards of solid waste were disposed at the site. The landfill was closed in 1979, after contaminants were found in residential wells.

Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) and Community Advisory Group (CAG) are two ways the community can get involved. Learn more about CAGs and TAGs
