HDR is an engineering company that constructs solar-voltaic landfills.  Vice president Mark Roberts states, "When you get done with a landfill, that property’s primary function can no longer be used anymore. It’s a great pyramid of waste,”  Which begs the question, "...What do you do with these facilities when you’ve filled it up?"  Landfills in Atlanta and San Antonio have become models for sustainable energy.  The Atlanta landfill, Hickory Ridge, produces 1 megawatt from its panels.  This energy is sold to Atlanta's power company.   San Antonio was the home of the first landfill in the country to be covered by solar panels.
