Landfill Restoration

Enovert’s Landfill sites are located in former quarries or derelict industrial sites.

Modern landfills are highly engineered facilities designed to ensure all waste, and any by-products from the degradation of the waste, are fully contained. Upon completion of a waste deposit, a high-quality engineered capping system is used to seal the surface of the landfill. This is followed by soil placement and planting of grassland, trees and shrubs to restore the landfill site to a natural state.

Enovert understands that landfill sites have a limited operational period and that the sites then need to be restored to provide a sustainable natural environment. Where possible Enovert’s restoration schemes provide amenity for use by local communities. Engaging with local communities and interested parties on the long-term aftercare of sites is important to Enovert.

Typically, Enovert’s landfill sites are restored to create natural habitats and open spaces such as woodlands or parks, which will foster biodiversity and provide a valuable public and ecological amenity. We also look to enhance schemes where possible to provide environmental benefit through enhanced woodland planting and opportunities for renewable energy generation.

We are committed to the long-term restoration, environmental monitoring and aftercare management of our landfill sites for decades to come.

Our work at the Mucking landfill site in Essex site has pushed all boundaries of scale and wildlife recovery when it comes to the restoration of former landfill sites. The transformation from landfill site to nature park at Mucking is recognised as one of the  most successful and sustainable landfill restoration schemes in the industry. Equally our transformation of the former abandoned pit heaps at the Lyme & Wood site near Haydock, Merseyside has created a mosaic of valuable habitat and provided local communities with connection to a new vast green open space.
