Landfill Consultancy in Georgia

What is a Landfill?

A landfill is a carefully designed and managed place for disposing of solid waste. Modern landfills are built to follow strict federal rules and to protect the environment from harmful substances in the waste. They are not allowed in sensitive environmental areas and use monitoring systems to check for groundwater contamination and landfill gas. These systems help ensure the landfill is safe for the environment.

Landfills have to meet tough design, operation, and closure standards set by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

Using landfills is just one part of managing waste. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests that communities focus on reducing waste and making products last longer, which helps decrease the amount and harmfulness of the waste.
