Singaporean delegation visits to discuss closed landfill management

On October 1, MWRRG hosted a delegation from the National Environment Agency (NEA) of Singapore. The delegates were interested to learn about Victoria’s waste management policies and planning considerations, in particular closed landfill management strategies.

The delegation was welcomed by CEO Rob Millard, and a discussion on the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan and the Local Buffer Support Program was led by Director of Strategy Projects and Communications, Josephine Regel. The group visited the Clayton South Closed Landfill Precinct Hub to view rehabilitation technologies, such as landfill gas and leachate treatment systems, engineered break layers and landfill gas monitoring systems.

The NEA sought to gain insights into the planning and management of closed landfills, with five closed landfills in Singapore that require rehabilitation and planning for future use.
