Posted by: arthur on 12/15/02 Title: Types of Fill in a Landfill Site
Postnum: 118 EntryID:705
Are there any environmental requirements to have a certain type and/or amount of dirt (ie clay or sand) to be mixed in with garbage in a landfill site? If so, how is it dertermined that a landfill site will use the correct type/amount of fill? What testing is done on the soil or dirt to ensure that it has the proper qualities for that site?

Arthur, Depending in ehich province you live in landfill criteria can vary. It will also depend on what type of landfill is to be constructed ie, sanitation verses industrial. Types of soils are just the one asspect of amny considered in determining if a site is sutiable for a landfill.

Here's a web site that may help you:

It's the ministry of water, land and air protect of BC. Legislation for other provinces may be somewhat the same.
