waste is unloaded from collection vehicles and briefly held while it is
reloaded onto larger long-distance transport vehicles for shipment to landfills
or other treatment or disposal facilities.
What is a Sanitary Landfill?
A sanitary landfill is a
low-lying area that is filled with waste rejects. It has a liner at the bottom
to prevent the groundwater from contaminating with the mix of the liquid that
oozes from the waste that is buried called the leachate. Waste is buried
in-between layers of soil and is compacted nicely to make it a hard surface.
When the landfill is completed, it is capped with a layer of clay or a
synthetic liner in order to prevent water from entering. A final topsoil cover
is placed, compacted and graded, and various forms of vegetation may be planted
in order to reclaim the otherwise useless land.
