Landfill mining

A new process in Australia

What is involved?

Landfill mining is the process of excavating waste from active or closed Landfills to reduce their environmental impact. It involves removing the hazardous material from the ground after a predefined period and treating it to recover. 

We work with your environmental consultant reviewing the potential solution to recycle as much soil, fill and green waste as possible.
