Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes.
Photograph caption dated September 26, 1957 reads "Tractor piles earth from side of mountain on top of rubbish that has been packed down. Dirt is later compacted with sheep-foot roller pulled by bulldozer. Burbank's cut and fill dump area is expected to last for another 9 to 10 years. Los Angeles County officials are looking for additional dumping sites to handle collection of more than 700,000 cubic yards of trash each month. Without additional areas, existing facilities in metropolitan area would be exhausted in a period of six to seven years." See image 00155137 for additional photo in this series.
