One aspect of the waste management value chain ignored by our urban managers has been waste disposal. As efforts are made to expand waste collection services proper planning and investment into responsible and environmentally friendly disposal and treatment options are not considered priority. Cities continue to rely on abandoned stone quarries and similar landscapes to serve as final disposal sites. As the cities expand, these quarries become part of the urban space and therefore in close proximity to human settlements. The implications for this development are socio economic and environmental.
Land filling remains the cheapest method of waste disposal as compared to other alternatives available, therefore investments in sanitary landfills that makes provision in the design and construction to manage environmental concerns of its operations is the way forward.
It is in these aspects of waste management and environmental sanitation that Waste Landfills Limited is working with the requisite expertise, technical and managerial competences as well as resources to support government, and local authorities to develop, operate and maintain disposal sites responsibly, to sustain environmental quality and add value to the waste management by exploring all end use options for the waste we generate.
