EL CENTRO — The Hot Spa and Imperial landfills last year reached capacity, and the Imperial County Department of Public Works Solid Waste/Recycling Division no longer stores waste at the two facilities. Now the county is spending more than $820,000 to start the closure process.

Closing a landfill is not a slow process or cheap.
