Capping & Gas Collection System Construction

KBL has successfully capped many landfills. We work with clients’ engineers to prepare leachate monitoring systems. More and more landfill closure involves the construction of a gas collection and management system. KBL is very experienced in the development of landfill gas collection systems.

  • Gas collection well drilling
  • Landfill closure
  • Gas plant construction
  • Bio-reactors
  • Cell capping
  • Landscaping

Reconstruction and Rehabilitation

With the increasing emphasis on alternatives to building new landfills and the regulatory burden in acquiring new landfill site permits, KBL’s landfill mining is an ideal solution. An effective landfill recovery can add decades to the life of an existing landfill preventing for many years the need to develop a new site. This process involves the reconstruction of existing cells with the screening and compacting of old waste which has long since composted.

  • Waste excavation
  • Backfilling and compacting
  • Waste screening
  • Removal of white goods
  • Waste asset recovery
  • Tire shredding
