A geomembrane as primary and secondary containment
Toe Drain System to collect, transport, and dispose of the moisture collected
  • Creates additional disposal capacity over top of an existing landfill footprint
  • Uses existing facility operations infrastructure
  • Incorporates existing environmental management controls
  • Lessens irretrievable commitment of resources compared with the land commitment that would be associated with a lateral expansion
  • Avoids a potentially long and costly facility siting process
  • Increases capacity without increasing closure cost and with negligible impact on post-closure costs
By Design: Preserving the Environment

A traditional MSE berm is inherently expensive particularly if the expanding facility must pay to source natural soil fill material for construction. This may represent the single-greatest economic challenge for the justification of a traditional MSE berm for landfill expansion. Material markets that could not be previously pursued (in both cases representing non-capacity diminishing revenue) can become a new source benefiting the owner.

  • Reuse of non-traditional construction materials avoids costly procurement of natural resources

  • Reduces/Eliminates purchase of acreage for waste containment footprint (lateral expansion)

  • Leverages existing facility permit

  • Negligible impact on post-closure costs in comparison (lateral expansion)

  • Can provide land reuse infrastructure; reducing future conversion costs

The simple idea of full encapsulation within the MSE berm is tremendously advantageous to the customers by reducing the financial burden of this type of capital expenditure. This provides “smaller” landfill operators (private or public) the ability to initiate this type of project.
