Closed landfill sites

Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority is responsible for the Environmental Monitoring of seven closed landfill sites on Merseyside.

Once a landfill site has reached the end of its useful life and taken all the waste it is permitted to hold, the site is then closed. The operator of the site then has a responsibility to restore the site in a way that is deemed suitable to the local planning authority.
