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

The role of landfill can be considered at three broad levels in terms of its waste management function:

  • Specialist: dealing with specialist and difficult wastes for which disposal by landfill is the appropriate means of disposal, e.g. asbestos and asbestos contaminated wastes, industrial sludge's and filter cakes, contaminated soils and various inert wastes.
  • Supporting: dealing with process residues and fines from energy recovery and recycling plants and general waste back-up during treatment plant down times; assisting with flexible and localised waste management solutions where other options are unavailable.
  • Bridging: helping to bridge the current and continuing waste treatment infrastructure capacity gap in the UK (the difference between residual waste arisings and available non-landfill waste treatment capacity).
