LandPac® Landfill Covers

Landfill Covers

The LandPac® Cover is an alternative daily landfill cover that replaces the application of six inches of topsoil at the end of each operating day, as required by law, saving man-hours and reducing other operational expenses. The Environmental Protection Agency has mandated the daily application of a landfill cover for health, sanitation, pest and odor control reasons, but applying six inches of soil every day is expensive. Compared to using a landfill cover, the cost for soil application is higher for labor, equipment operating expenses and the excavation, delivery and placement of the topsoil. Landfill tarps are much more economical and practical.

The landfill daily covers will shed surface water, prevent blowing litter, control disease vectors, prevent waste fires and reduce scavenging. You can also minimize the absorption of liquids into the soil or waste to minimize leachate. Controlling each of these processes upfront represents cost savings in the future. The landfill soil covers have many other uses besides covering landfills too. For example, they are ideal for preventing soil erosion due to wind and rain during construction projects, agricultural operations or soil remediation by environmental field services.
