Environmental Protection - Combined measures to protect air and landscape

Only where the actual cell is, waste can be seen! All the other area, the previous cells – are safely covered with soil!

The ‘Cell’ – the only surface where waste is visible

Depositing follows a strict and systematic plan and the cell is the key element of the filling plan. The “cell” is practically the place where waste is discharged from the trucks, piled up with a caterpillar, compacted with a special compactor and then covered with soil on a daily basis. Depending on the amount of waste delivered daily, the cell will be filled up (2 to 3 m high) during a certain period (50 to 100 days) and then sealed with an additional final strata of soil and plants. Then a new cell will be started in direct continuation of the filled up cell.
