The 80-acre Waste Management of Michigan—Holland Lagoons site is located at 2700 N. 168th Avenue between Riley and James streets near Holland, Michigan. The property is about a half-mile from Lake Michigan in Ottawa County. The area around the site is mixed residential, recreational and agricultural. The site consists of the former lagoon area and the office/maintenance garage building. The property is adjacent to the Southwest Ottawa County Landfill Superfund site to the northeast.

The Holland Lagoons site was operated by Jacobusse's Refuse Service Co. from about 1945 until 1972 and by various successor companies including WMMI until 1980. The site accepted solid and liquid waste for disposal.

The location was placed on the National Priorities List in 1986.
