With the great push towards using the “new” waste technologies, which the UK government started in 2003, and has now changed waste management in the UK so much that now in 2013 for the first time ever, more waste is being recycled than is being sent to landfill.

So, landfill is unfashionable. Few people are writing about the waste management of landfills, yet so many landfills remain in operation, and the ever increasing stock of closed landfills continues to grow and to require expert management.

But, “The Landfill Site Web Site” will not be deterred by unfashionable subjects, and will continue to provide information on all aspects of landfilling. with a dash of recycling thrown in as well!
