Different types of landfills
An open dump is an uncontrolled landfill in which waste is simply spread out and left to decompose. This type of landfill is the least expensive and most common type, but is also the most environmentally damaging having no environmental protection or engineering controls.
This type of landfill is typically used for short-term storage of waste, and is not suitable for long-term storage.
A sanitary landfill is an engineered landfill designed to contain and isolate the solid waste. This type of landfill is designed to prevent the leakage of pollutants into the environment and its surrounding areas. This is done by lining the landfills with a geomembrane and other materials, such as clay.
Subtitle D / hazardous waste landfill
Subtitle D landfills are landfills that have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These landfills are designed to contain hazardous waste such as chemicals, solvents and other materials. These landfills are subject to additional regulations and are designed and constructed to prevent contamination of the surrounding environment.
An inert landfill is a landfill that is designed to contain non-hazardous materials, such as construction and demolition debris, and concrete. This type of landfill is the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to deal with these types of materials.
