Vertical Secured Landfill
In 2015, the existing secured landfill at the WMC was close to full capacity. We had a major problem of finding adequate space for incoming waste.
We then conceptualized a strategic vision to create more air space at our existing landfill. The Vertical Secured Landfill Project was born and construction commenced in March 2015.
Over the next four years, a 24m high geogrid wall will be built along the 1.7km parameter of our existing secured landfill. This first phase (Phase 1) will provide additional capacity of 1.5 million MT and increase the lifespan initial by 15 years without using new land.
