Finalising landfill reclamation case in Albania

LIMNOS is finalising a first phase rehabilitation of municipal waste landfill in Devoll (Albania). The site has been an illegal waste deposit for many years and became a threat for inhabitants and public health. SInce the construction od a modern landfill in the region, this location became obsolete and in need for rehabilitation. Within this project, the deposition bed for remaining waste was created and 25.000 m3 of waste relocated. Leachate waters are gathered in prefabricated sedimentation tank and are purified on a constructed wetland. The system supports area reclamation with minimum maintenance efforts.
