In April 1987 , a study was completed by Gannett Fleming Environmental Engineers, Inc. to evaluate the feasibility of expanding the site into Area III for eight (8) years of additional capacity or converting the site into a home-owner drop-off center with an expansion to the St. Andrews landfill. The latter alternative was chosen as it was projected to be less costly over the 10 year planning period. The Clement’s Landfill property, formerly a portion of the Tennyson Farm, was purchased on July 28, 1971 and land-filling operations continued until May 1, 1989 under a State approved Refuse Disposal Permit. The original site was 47.428 acres and is owned by the Commissioners of St. Mary's County. Post-closure monitoring continues to this date.
