Landfill has fallen from 80 million tonnes to 43.9 million tonnes in just 20 years

Landfill Restoration

Landfill sites are restored to meet the needs of the local community. Once restoration is complete, they are suitable for a variety of purposes, including recreation, nature conservation and livestock grazing. We continue to manage and maintain the land in line with the terms of our permit for up to 50 years.

Leachate Treatment

Our specialist leachate treatment facilities treat landfill leachate by reducing the ammonia concentration to a level where the treated leachate can be sent to the public sewage network. Leachate Treatment Facilities are available for third party landfill operators at our Brookhurst Wood, Poplars, Risley and Westmill sites.
