New landfill projects: Examine cooperation opportunities
Often, the mineral waste volume to be disposed of in a district is not sufficient to justify the economic construction a new landfill site or landfill section. One reason for this is that waste volumes from construction activities in particular are subject to high fluctuations. Legal or technical changes, economic development over the entire landfill operation period, requirements for closure and aftercare over decades are challenges whose effects are difficult to assess legally and financially. Such a project therefore involves many risks.
Cooperation with public or private-sector partners creates more economic and legal security than pure in-house operation. All models possess advantages and disadvantages that have to be individually considered in the context of landfill planning.
