Springfield Newspapers press photo provided by the Suffield Historical Society
This photo was taken on May 30, 1987, by Norm Roy of Suffield for the Springfield Newspapers. It shows the Suffield Landfill in operation soon after the Town’s facility was moved from Phelps Road. Present transfer station staffer Joe Duval identified the tractor at left top center, parked above a hillside of already buried trash, as one used to compact household trash before burying it in layers. The Town’s landfill no longer buries household trash, which is now transported elsewhere for disposal.
