Despite the use of alternative processes, waste disposal in landfill sites is still the principle method in use today. A modern, well managed and engineered landfill is still a vital part of the global waste disposal concept.
For the most effective use of landfill space, a high performance refuse compactor, designed specifically for the extreme demands imposed by landfill conditions is needed. Proper compaction is key to ensure that refuse is deposited at the highest possible density. This reduces settling and water penetration, improves the running surface of the landfill and decreases the dangers of fire and landfill gas emissions. Increasing compacted densities through the reduction of air voids extends the operating life of a landfill. High refuse density makes both environmental and economic sense.
