Designing A Better Alternative for Post-Closure Care
After a landfill has reached the end of its service phase, federal law requires owners to install a final soil cover and maintain it over the next 30 years. This is the traditional strategy that most landfill owners employ and represents a significant cost of business. When all the layers are tallied together, the capping and post-closure period can cost up to $400,000 for a small, 100-acre landfill. With advancements in geosynthetics over the past half-century, however, there is a viable alternative. The U.S....
GPT Waste help Carillion meet landfill targets with proactive waste management services - Case Study
The project, which was based at Doncaster train station, involved building a new platform and footbridge for the city centre station, this meant that there was a lot of excavating and signalling work to be carried out. Carillion approached GPT Waste for waste management services in order to assist in reaching their high diversion from landfill targets. GPT Waste were asked to visit the site, in order to provide some alternative measures for managing mixed construction waste, general waste, metal and office...
Major Considerations in Landfill Closure
Preparing for the closure and long-term care of a municipal solid waste landfill (MSWLF) can be an inordinate undertaking. Whether public or private, all landfills eventually reach the end of their active lifecycle. Before closure, a landfill must meet a series of criteria as determined by Subtitle D of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). Following closure, those same regulations also require a minimum 30-year care period of monitoring and maintaining the landfill after it no longer generates...
Why You Want Articulated Concrete for Landfill Protection
A good landfill is one that no one notices. It does not produce odors, contribute to erosion or divert storm water to undesirable locations. The municipality or private entity in charge of it has to make great efforts to keep it that way. One way to do that is by installing articulated concrete. This system of concrete blocks and wires offers landfill protection that is unlike previous options. If you are a landfill operator or a municipal officer in charge of landfills, here is why you want to consider this...
