About Riverview Land Preserve

Riverview Land Preserve (RLP) is a Michigan-based licensed, Type II (non-hazardous) solid waste landfill facility, owned and operated by the City of Riverview since 1968. The facility design and operation exceed both state and federal regulations, making it possible to manage a variety of non-hazardous solid wastes, in an environmentally responsible manner.

 The City of Riverview maintains a strong commitment to local residents, customers and community partners to provide high-quality service, while protecting environmental resources. It is with this level of commitment which makes Riverview a leader in developing innovative approaches to solid waste opportunities, for over 50 years; and, has also made solid waste management a successful, strategic part of the City’s everyday business.

The RLP facilities and services have been designed to meet the needs of municipal, commercial and industrial clients, such as on-site recycling, paved, drop-off site, weight scale with ticket office, secure disposal of construction, demolition, commercial, tree wood management, and special wastes.
