The GAL

The Greater Albany Landfill, aka Albany's landfill from 1969 until 1992. Most of it's ash monofill, at least from 1978-1992. It was replaced by the Rapp Road Landfill to it's east in 1992, a more modern lined landfill that replaced a sand-mine filled with garbage, that replaced the city's older landfill in North Albany along I-787.

Too bad they've never really considered a serious recycling program in the city, because garbage is such a big business for the city. But it has great views, and it's going to have some kind of Pine Bush like habitat up there some $20 million dollars later.
