Landfill Aftercare and Legacy Landfill Management

Closed landfills may require on-going management of landfill gas and leachate production, and an ongoing liability for the protection of the public and the environment. The risks and management strategies required depend on many site-specific factors. But closed landfills also offer the option for redevelopment, which brings with it the potential to generate a revenue against which the ongoing environmental liabilities can be offset.

There are many options for landfill reuse although modern landfill designs may restrict the use of construction techniques which penetrate the landfill cap or basal liner. GECL can assist you in the redevelopment of late-life or closed landfills as:

  • Energy parks, particularly for solar PV or wind schemes
  • Hard redevelopment for managed infra-structure with associated gas protection
  • Soft redevelopment for grazing, energy crops, or country parks
