Council landfill sites must meet the requirements of the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 and associated regulations as well as the Public Health Act 1997 . They also provide convenient disposal facilities to households, businesses and industry.
Issues associated with managing landfill sites include the management of hazardous waste and preventing any impact off-site, including the discharge of waste-water or odour, vermin and visual impacts. There is also the issue of rehabilitating sites after they are no longer used for landfill. DPIWE has published a number of guidelines on how landfill sites and waste transfer stations should be operated.
