Landfill is an important part of Australia’s waste management infrastructure. The siting, management and rehabilitation of landfill sites require a high level of design and management to ensure that the environment and community are protected and aspirations are met.
Regulatory authorities have developed state-specific landfill guidelines to assist landfill owners and operators with design and rehabilitation of landfill cells, ongoing environmental management, day to day operation and long term aftercare.
Australian Environmental Auditors (AEA) has a strong team of EPA-appointed/accredited environmental auditors and technical experts across the country, including one of Australia’s foremost landfill gas experts, available in-house to clients.
Our extensive experience has shown that states, councils, independent owners and operators are increasing their diligence in design, operation and management through compliance with raising legislative and industry standards. Communities are also becoming more engaged in the environment and more active in opposing landfill sites.
