Landfill Operations Guidelines

The Landfill Operations Guidelines were first produced in 2002 as a loose leaf document to assist waste managers with the day to day operations of landfills. At that time it was not intended to be a technical document but one providing general guidance which would lead to improved operational practices.

The guidelines have now been updated by the ISWA Working Group for Landfill to reflect current operational practice and as appropriate some technical guidance. The guidelines now include a number of photographs which are used to illustrate the activities described.
