Monitoring & Services
We help ensure former landfill sites meet all statutory and legal compliance obligations through maintenance and monitoring.
Landfill Site Monitoring & Leachate removal
Waste haulage services help to keep people, the land and the environment protected. This includes:
- Monitoring landfill gas and leachate (the gas and polluted liquid produced by the breaking down of biodegradable waste) and provide detailed reports
- Deliver remedial services to ensure the site stays compliant
- Removing excess leachate by the Sweeptech tanker fleet for disposal at compliant disposal facilities
Landfill Site aftercare period
Sweeptech services help the permit holder (usually the former operator) to complete the monitoring required by the permit in the “aftercare period”.
Over time, our site monitoring data can help demonstrate if a site no longer presents a significant risk of pollution or harm to human health. This can support any permit surrender application.
Making use of Landfill Sites
By helping companies and authorities understand the condition of former landfill sites, we help to identify whether they can build on it or reclaim the land for other purposes.
For facilities that are built on landfill sites, Sweeptech supports businesses that still have a duty of care to report on site conditions. For example, we work with many facilities management companies.
