Landfills for Solids and Waste

Landfills are one of the most common uses for geomembranes. The most common type of landfill is the municipal landfill with multiple layers of geosynthetics in the base and usually more geosynthetics in the cap. These geosynthetics keep the waste dry to prevent the formation of and to contain any leachate which could harm the environment.

During the operation of a landfill there are also geosynthetics used for a number of other uses. These include landfill daily covers which cover the working face at the end of each day and interim covers which are used to cover closed sections of the landfill until a final cap can be constructed. Other geosynthetics such as leachate pond liners, landfill cap materials, erosion control products, and most other types of geosynthetics materials are available from Layfield.

You did it right by setting it up in advance and letting us know your takeaways. This made for beneficial use of our time." Matthew, Civil & Commercial Construction Company
