Landfill Process


The Landfill Process


At Grundon, we fully believe that landfill is a key stage in a meticulously planned process which involves the extraction of minerals, the in-filling with waste, comprehensive monitoring and finally restoration. With this in mind, each step of the process is carefully managed by a relevant section of the Grundon business, ensuring that the appropriate skills are deployed, along with the relevant knowledge, experience and resources.

Pre-assessment of landfill sites


All of our landfill sites are pre-assessed for environmental impact, and every planning and permit application submitted is accompanied by comprehensive documentation dealing with every issue that might impact upon the local environment and communities.

Ensuring best practice and setting standards


All Grundon landfill sites comply fully with relevant legislation, their environmental permits and industry guidance. The sites operate in compliance with their management system that is accredited to ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environmental) and OHSAS 18001 (Health and Safety), we are fully committed to maintaining and improving the system.

We enthusiastically support the waste hierarchy and focus our efforts on diversion from landfill wherever possible. As part of our environmental focus and approach, we always aim to make the most of the increasingly scarce natural resources. We actively search out the most technical, environmental, economic and practical ways of reducing your waste and focus on minimising the amount of waste we send to landfill.

Careful operation of landfill sites


We conduct ongoing and detailed research programmes, which target constant improvement in areas such as containment, leachate treatment, gas control, and site restoration. All of our landfills are lined with clay of measured permeability or with a combination of clay and an impermeable lining material. The lining of each landfill is fully tested and installed under an approved independent quality assurance and construction programme.

Landfill gas management and energy recovery


Over recent years we have focussed on upgrading our landfill gas infrastructure to minimise the amount of landfill gas that can escape to atmosphere. This captured gas is then passed through engines that allow it to be converted to electricity, which his exported to the National Grid. The expansion of the gas infrastructure remains highly important to us, as we continue to see a reduction in the amount of gas being passively vented from our landfill sites.

Restoration of landfill sites


As part of our commitment to the effective management of our operations, we aim to enhance biodiversity on our sites. The restoration and land reclamation of finished landfill sites is of critical importance to Grundon. Once the extraction of minerals and the controlled landfilling has been completed, we then begin a considered and detailed process of restoration – followed by ongoing agricultural and recreational management.

We actively take positive steps to monitor and enhance wildlife on our sites. We see this as an essential part of the correct management of all our sites, especially the landfills, to develop long-term plans to ensure each site is returned to a useful purpose once it reaches the end of its operational life.
