The former Attleboro Dump - located on Peckham Street, near the Norton town line, and last operated by Attleboro Landfill Inc. - consists of two areas: the closed and capped 23-acre Phase A and the uncapped 11-acre Phase B. Only after Phase B is capped in accordance with Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) solid waste regulations at 310 CMR 19.000 can the entire unlined 34-acre landfill be certified as closed.
