Project Integra - Hampshire's integrated waste management partnership

Landfill Site

Located in: Chatsworth (‘Blue Haze’).

There is now only one landfill site in Hampshire for disposing of residual household waste, and this is anticipated to be full within 5-10 years.  The site is filled in cells which are covered with a layer of soil at the end of each day.  Once buried, the waste will start to biodegrade but, depending on the type of material, this may take many years.  As it degrades landfill gas (mainly methane) is produced – this is captured through a network of pipes.
