The 80-acre Coshocton Landfill site is located at State Route 83 Franklin Township, Coshocton, Coshocton County, Ohio. It originally was used for coal strip mining in the mid-1900s. Later, the city operated it as a landfill from 1968 to 1979. A 1977 fire contaminated ground water, surface water and soil with various types of waste including alcohols, acetone, xylene and neoprene. The city's residents live about three miles from the landfill, however, their water supply is not affected.

The final cleanup plan was selected in 1988. The city of Coshocton and the seven companies determined to be responsible for the contamination paid for the cleanup consisting of a cap over 40 acres of the landfill. EPA deleted this site from its Superfund list in 1998.
