Leachate control is an important part of managing the pollution potential of a landfill site.  It is also a very costly part of landfill management for waste contractors and local authorities.

The most effective approach to landfill leachate management is likely to come through a good understanding of the volumes of leachate to extract, the quality of that leachate, and how these may change in the future as a result of waste stabilisation.  There are also important links to revenue earning landfill gas generation and extraction.
