Frequently Asked Questions

A basic landfill is a pit with a protected bottom to prevent contamination of groundwater, where trash is buried in layers, compacted and covered.The more advanced, engineered landfills consist of a complex, multi-layered liner system at the bottom and the sides. This is a leachate system, which also includes a treatment of leachate.

A leachate is any liquid that, while passing through matter, extracts soluble or suspended solids, or any other component of the material through which it has passed. Untreated leachate can potentially damage soil, water and wildlife.

Engineered landfills, and the management thereof, provide a sustainable solution to the traditional landfill problems encountered, such as pest control, as well as odour control, and poses less of an impact to the environment due to the proper management of the by-products of waste, specifically relating to the landfill.
