Over the coming months and years ISWA will be compiling an extensive collection of case studies on dumpsite closures. Our campaign demands the closure of dumpsites, but this must be done properly in a sustainable manner with maximum societal benefit. As more and more dumpsites are closed, we will report on them here and provide you with the know-how in order to assist you with such projects.
Whilst currently limited, we hope to be able to provide you with more in the future as our campaign progresses.
We urge you to get in contact if you have any case studies or examples of dumpsite closures in your region.
Like the knowledge base, some items may require you to login to the ISWA Knowledge Base to download the article.
