Fresno Municipal Sanitary Landfill, also known as Fresno Sanitary Landfill, opened in 1935 in Fresno, California, was the first modern landfill in the U.S., pioneering the use of trenching, compacting, and daily burial to combat rodent and debris problems. It became a model for other landfills around the country, and one of the longest-lived. The landfill was operated by The City of Fresno, California until it closed in 1989. At that time, the landfill had reached the size of 145 acres.
It is located at West Avenue and Jensen Avenue in Fresno.
