Free Landfill Site eBook Downloads
Welcome to our newly updated downloads page! Where we provide technical help in waste disposal.
The Waster has been busy writing ebooks about practical waste management, and these are available for immediate downloading below.
1. An Introduction to Landfill Site Selection
These days the selection of a site to develop a landfill is a difficult task. There are a whole host of factors to consider before you can say with any confidence that you have really selected a location which will meet all the necessary criteria for a waste disposal site.
How do you set about the landfill site selection process, and what are the “necessary criteria”?
Start by reading and applying the concepts described in our ebook!
An Introduction to Landfill Site Selection
– Hydrology and Hydrogeology
– Topography and Soils
– Adjacent Land Use
– Flora and Fauna
– Site Capacity Considerations
– Vehicle Access
– Other Subsidiary Issues
– Cost Factors

The way we have approached the subject is in a very general style, so this book should be suitable for those starting out to select a landfill. it should also help students wishing to research this subject from all around the world, such is the universality of landfill these days.
2. How to Tip a Landfill
From recent discussions with an engineer who is about to design his very first landfill, a new landfill in the tropical forest for his burgeoning town's population, but has no experience of a landfill at all, because none-exist in his state at all yet, made the Waster realize one fact.
That fact is that there there is very little basic information available both on the internet, or even published in books currently in print, on the very practical aspects of how you build a landfill day by day, and operate a landfill in what I call a “good neighbourly” manner.
That is why I wrote the ebook below, which includes early guidance on landfill operation which despite its age, still stands up well to the test of time.
These are simple actions that site operators apply (and more!) throughout developed nations, but which also need to be consistently adopted by developing communities, and by so doing will substantially reduce the negative impacts of landfills.
Put the guidance in this ebook together with the other ebooks on this page and the information which is offered here by the way of technology help in waste disposal should be very valuable. How to Tip a Landfill or the Method of Tipping Waste in a Landfill CONTENTS

4. An Introduction to Landfill Settlement
Not FREE! (reason given below)
The Secret to Understanding How a Realistic Landfill Settlement Assessment Can
Reveal that the Void Capacity of Any Landfill is Up To 15% Greater Than Previously Thought
Landfill settlement is an important matter. To make a case for planning authority permission to lift the whole site by a 10 to 15% waste surcharge height can generate about that proportion of the total site void space in the additional void!
What really makes landfill managers take a very keen interest in this subject is also that this capacity comes with no additional development costs. No wonder then that many landfill operating organisations are seeking very high quality and authoritative modelling assessments of settlement so that they can gain approval for the maximum waste surcharge levels when the last bulker delivers the last load.
It is a fact that modern landfills which are brought up to full height fast will settle rapidly at first, and if surcharging is not applied the operator will find that the top of the landfill has dropped significantly below planning permission levels within 2 to 3 years of restoration.
If a landfill settles below its planning permission levels soon after completion the owner leaves void space revenue unclaimed!
That means that MONEY SPENT on landfill settlement prediction often BRINGS A MASSIVE RETURN on the investment.
This eBook will not tell you how to calculate settlement. That is far too complex a subject to cover in a short eBook.
However, once you have read this eBook you will be able to understand the complex interaction of physical and biochemical interactions which cause settlement, and you will then be able to understand settlement issues and discuss the possible appointment of a landfill engineer expert to calculate landfill settlement.
But, best of all you will be able to talk with the landfill settlement expert on his own terms and understand the technical details in his report.
The value of an understanding of Landfill Settlement is therefore very high, and the cost of this eBook at £4.99 (GBP) is an absolute bargain!
