LANDFILL SITE

LANDFILL SITE

Lagos and Abuja are growing exponentially in population. Essentially, human activities must necessarily generate waste which has to be disposed in one way or the other.

A land fill site is said to be a site for the disposal of organic waste materials by burying the substances.

The operators of a well defined land fill site for non harzardous are usually guided by two principles , namely;
a) Confinement of waste to a small area
b) Compact waste to reduce volume

It is important to note that landfills produce gases due to the anaerobic digestion by microbes.

In a properly managed landfill, this gas is collected and used. The gas can also be flared ,or utilized and can be used to generate electricity.

We call on the Federal , State and local government to tap into the waste to wealth scheme that the generating of gas and electricity from land fill provide , thereby bridging the energy gap
