Southern Waste ResourceCo Landfill – Stage 4, Cell 3 – Double Composite Disposal Cell

Southern Waste ResourceCo Landfill
Stage 4 Cell 3 – Double Composite Disposal Cell

Location: McLaren Vale, approximately 35 kilometres south of Adelaide.
Customer: Fabtech
Product: BOSTD E’DRAIN Geocomposite drainage layer

OVERVIEW:

Southern Waste ResourceCo has invested in a multimillion-dollar, purpose-built, hazardous waste disposal facility in South Australia.

The construction of the double composite lined cell reflects best practice landfill design and construction, with Southern Waste ResourceCo working with the South Australian EPA, as the regulator of the facility, to bring the project to delivery.

The cell construction raises the bar in environmental and engineering performance and has been designed to accept some of the new and emerging hazardous waste streams generated from contaminated sites including per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

KEY CHALLENGES:

A custom Geocomposite drainage layer that was a continuous install from anchor trench to the toe of the cell i.e. 70m long rolls.

SOLUTION:

  • Cost effective drainage layer (compared to traditional methods)
  • Custom lengths, 70m long rolls, thus no embankment overlaps/joins/connection detailing

THE RESULT:

To quote the ResourceCo website*

A FIRST FOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA
The Cell, which uses a multi-layer liner system is the ‘only one of its kind’ in South Australia and one of several constructed in Australia to offer a superior level of protection when compared with traditionally lined disposal cells. It includes the construction of three different types of liners made from processed shale materials, high-density polyethylene and geosynthetic clay liners.
