All landfills have an operational life that slowly diminishes with each passing year. As more and more capacity of the landfill is consumed the operational life slowly reduces itself. Of course the operational life of an average landfill will depend on a variety of factors such as the landfill size and the disposal (and compaction) rate. Given these factors it will be crucial for First Nations communities to determine the estimated useful life of a landfill when preparing long term community planning.
As part of a long term waste solution, estimating the useful life of your communities landfill can help reduce environmental and safety risks including:
- Water contamination
- Air quality
- Capacity issues
