The Project

Construction of cell 3 and capping of area 7

An extension was required to the landfill to provide an additional waste reception void. The engineering works comprised of excavation to achieve a required formation, the installation of a clay attenuation layer and the installation of a synthetic 2mm HDPE membrane. A drainage geotextile and imported leachate collection blanket were installed over the lining system. Leachate monitoring and extraction pipework and chambers, together with target pads were also installed.

Capping was completed on an adjacent portion of the site. The cap comprised of a Geosynthetic Clay Liner, overlain on steeper slope sections by a geocomposite drainage layer. Suitable restoration soils were then filled over the capping system to complete the works.

Associated works included the removal, relocation and erection of a high-level fencing netting system.
