Achieving Optimum Cell Geometry


The daily landfill cell is not only the heart of landfill operations, it’s also the biggest cost center. So…how can you select the most cost-effective and productive cell configuration and combinations for your site?

Join Neal Bolton for the second session in our Airspace Management Master Class exploring optimum cell geometry, factors, and considerations, and how you can design and build the best cell configuration for your landfill.

In this presentation, Bolton will walk through the factors, considerations, and best practices in designing and building optimum cell configuration, including: compaction, equipment costs, soil usage, waste handling and placement costs, minimizing issues (e.g., litter, birds, vectors, odors), and optimum cell geometry. Within this discussion, we’ll take a look compaction, its impact on cell geometry, and the techniques available to optimize it. We’ll explore the cost factors associated with daily cell management, and how you can evaluate and estimate soil, cover, and waste handling costs. We’ll cover the typical cell construction issues (e.g., litter, birds, vectors, and odors), the techniques and applications available, and the best practices for minimizing issue impact. And finally, Bolton will outline how you can identify, design, and apply the most cost-effective cell configuration for your landfill.

Learning Objectives
