ISWA Working Group on Landfills & Closing Dumpsites Task Force ( Continued )




This session is presented by ISWA WGL and IFC’s Task Force on Closing Dumpsites Global Initiative to highlight what we can do worldwide in assisting countries with dumpsite operations who want to reduce waste mounding by bio-mining, sorted material reuse or converting to RDF product for green energy feedstock. To reduce the volume of waste going to the dumpsites, we need to divert as much organic waste and recyclable materials as possible away from the dumpsites. Bio-mining operations, recovering of RDF, and reusing plastic waste from the waste stream at dumpsites will be discussed to show how they are related and in transitioning from dumpsites to controlled or engineered sanitary landfills operations. If executed properly, and sorted materials have their destinations, bio-mining has a potential for recovering material resources, waste volume reduction, and minimizing the environmental risks from operating or remediating a dumpsite. Finally, the panelists will discuss how to finance dumpsite closure or remediation activities, along with its challenges in various parts of the world where regulations and standard of practices vary significantly.
