Promentory Point landfill
Promontory Point, a remote and unspoiled place on the shore of Great Salt Lake previously famous for being the meeting of the transcontinental railroad, is about to become a garbage dump. Promontory Point Resources, LLC, is developing a 981-acre landfill on private land at the tip of Promontory Point using the Union Pacific railroad causeway and local roads to access the remote location.
The company has applied for a Class V permit which would allow accepting out-of-state waste.
