While landfills are often an eyesore for many towns and municipalities, they are also a necessary way to allow people to dispose of their unwanted trash. If your town or municipality has one or more landfills, you may be looking for ways to update the land so that there is reduced waste or so that they include a more cost-effective solution. One option is landfill remediation, which can offer a number of benefits for towns and municipalities that are looking to overhaul their landfill areas.
According to the EPA, landfill remediation can:
- Increase waste disposal capacity
- Avoid risk of landfill closure
- Reduce liability of remediation in surrounding areas
- Generate revenue from recyclable and reusable materials
- Allow combustible waste to be sold as fuel
- And more
The EPA also suggests taking several steps to ensure that landfill remediation will work well for your site. You’ll want to do a site study to make sure the landfill site is a good fit for remediation. You should also assess the potential economic benefits and investigate any regulatory requirements associated with landfill remediation. It will also be important to create a worker health and safety plan prior to remediation, as well as assess the project costs.
