Workers were using heavy equipment to move garbage in the sorting warehouse on the property when they discovered the body, Gonzalez said.
It was unclear how long the body had been in the sorting facility or if it had originally been at the landfill.
Gonzalez said investigators were on their way to the crime scene.
The Tall Pines Landfill, also known as the Hardy Landfill, is operated by the Waste Corporation of Texas.
