Description

Landfills in the Central Australian region have historically been subject to neglect and legacy issues that affect the efficiency, safety and health of landfill sites. This recognition led to the establishment of the Central Australian Waste Management Program being in 2012. This document is a practical guide intended to assist Council Managers, Works Supervisors and field staff to implement effective change at their landfill sites. The framework outlined in the Manual applies to remote landfills and will assist in long term improvements and functionality that will keep landfills operating well. The Manual helps put in place training for staff and ongoing management principles that will assist Councils in the task of maintaining healthy and well-functioning landfill sites.

Abstract

This resource consolidates existing waste management resources that have been created by Central Desert, Barkly and MacDonnell Regional Councils. The Manual recognises the LGANT Waste Management Guidelines for Small Communities in the Northern Territory as a key document. This Manual has been produced as part of the Central Australian Waste Management Project 2012/13 funded by NT Department of Health, coordinated by Local Government Association NT and delivered by Central Desert, Barkly and MacDonnell Regional Councils.

The Central Australian Remote Landfill Operating Manual 21 | P a g e The trench design meets current trenching and WHS standards and allows Council staff to operate the trench in a manner consistent with the principles outlined in the manual. Using this design will maximise trench life and will enable the effective development of waste cells and compaction efficiencies. The stepped sided trench with a floor width of 9m allows council staff to safely conduct work in the trench and carry out the four C s of landfill management. They are; 1) Consolidate 2) Compact 3) Cover 4) Cap *Detailed in section 2 pg 50-51 Smaller scale trenches can be used in sites with spatial constraints. The use of straight walled trenches is no longer permissible in any new trench with walls higher than 1.5m. Walls prone to collapse due to under-scouring
