The Colbert Landfill site spans 40 acres and is located two miles north of Colbert, Washington. From 1968 through 1986, the landfill received municipal and commercial wastes. Between 1975 and 1980, a local electronics manufacturing company disposed of spent organic solvents at the landfill. These wastes typically were brought to the landfill in drums and were poured down the sides of open trenches containing soil and ordinary municipal refuse. During the same period, Fairchild Air Force Base disposed of various solvent wastes at the site. The landfill was closed in 1986 and cleanup work was completed in 1987.
