Remediation Phase

Alternative Landfill Technologies

Technologies that are used to support the remediation and closure of landfills.

Alternative Landfill Technology Documents
A series of documents that addresses regulatory and technical obstacles that inhibit the use of alternative landfill covers, bioreactor landfills, and a process to optimize post-closure care of landfills.

Alternative Final Landfill Covers (ALT-2)
Section 1 (Introduction)

Information for decision makers associated with the plan development, review, and implementation of alternative final covers (AFCs), which may also be referred to in this text as alternative covers, alternative landfill covers, or ET (evapotranspiration covers).
